Housing Opportunities

Where can you call “home”?

There is no housing on campus at Kishwaukee College. However, unlike many four-year colleges and universities, there are no restrictions on where Kishwaukee College students may live. Some students choose to live at home for financial reasons; others live in apartments with friends to share expenses; and still others opt to live at University Plaza (UP) in DeKalb for a more traditional college residence hall living experience.

Students who are considering a DeKalb County residential option should also consider transportation needs. The College offers low-cost transportation options from both DeKalb and Rochelle. We recommend that students needing bus transportation select an apartment on or near the bus route.

Kishwaukee College does not approve, endorse, or recommend any off-campus facilities. However, there are several local databases that offer information about local housing options.

1) The NIU off-campus housing office provides valuable online resources. Office staff can only assist NIU students; however, online resources are available to everyone. Resources include: moving tips, sample roommate agreements, contacts to local storage units and moving vans, information about section 8/subsidized housing, pet-friendly rentals, and more.

2) The Northern Star, Northern Illinois University's student-run newspaper, compiles an annual housing guide:

3) The Daily Chronicle, serving DeKalb County, offers local classified listings for rental properties:

4) Century 21 Elsner Realty in DeKalb maintains a courtesy list of rental properties. This list can be obtained by calling the main office at (815) 756-1691, or by stopping in the office in person at 901 N. First St. in DeKalb, IL.

NOTE: Financial aid does not cover housing costs. However, under some financial aid programs, funding that remains after tuition, fees, and books are paid may be used toward housing. Kishwaukee College pays financial aid refund checks directly to the student.
