Where can you call “home”?

Kishwaukee College does not have on-campus living; however, there are no restrictions on where students may live. Some students choose to live at home or in apartments with friends while others choose University Plaza (UP) in DeKalb for a more traditional college residence hall living experience.

Students considering residential options should also consider transportation needs. The College offers low-cost transportation options from both DeKalb and Rochelle. Students are encouraged to select an apartment on or near the bus route for a more convenient living experience.

Kishwaukee College does not approve, endorse, or recommend any off-campus facilities. There are several local databases offering information about local housing options, however.

  1. The NIU 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. Call or visit the office for more information at 815-756-1691 or 901 N. First Street in DeKalb, IL.

NOTE: Financial Aid DOES NOT cover housing costs although under some financial aid programs, reimbursement checks may be used to cover costs of living.
