FatherNewman Catholic Households

Transitioning from our Catholic housing at University Plaza, we are establishing covenanted apartment living for 2018-2019.  What this means is that Catholic students will live together in an intentional community.

The residents commit to living as a community sharing weekly prayer and meals together.  They are involved at Newman with spiritual, service and social activities. Three bedroom apartments at 615 Lucinda.  Rent is $265 plus utilities.

For more information contact Jocelyn Marin at marinjocelyn97@gmail.com or at 630-618-8285.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

What others have to say.

My name is Nick Battisti and I graduated from Northern Illinois University in December of 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in Meteorology and Geography. During my freshman year I found it hard to find somewhere that I fit in or even to make friends. At this point I didn’t even know the Newman Center existed and it was a time where practicing Catholicism had almost become non-existent for me. I was randomly placed on the Newman Center floor at University Plaza and right away I could tell this was going to be a better year. I quickly made friends with others living on the floor and found out that they were involved at the Newman Center. Soon after I found myself spending much of my time there and I also began to rediscover my faith. The Newman floor at University Plaza is a great way to make genuine friendships with people who also share in the same faith. Some of my best friends to this day are from that floor and I don’t intend that to change. I can’t imagine what my life would be like if I hadn’t lived there. It was the place that began my journey back toward God and allowed Him to work through me in all that I do.

“Living on the Newman Floor establishes and strengthens friendships with others from Newman and creates community.”

Past Resident
“The Newman Catholic Student Center has always been a home away from home for Catholic students at Northern Illinois University... Now Newman-Hall DeKalb at University Plaza can extend the same support to a “Catholic-friendly” environment in which the student resident can live a holistic life which includes all social, intellectual and spiritual facets of life.”

“Newman friends, a swimming pool, large windows and an ice cream machine - can it get any better than this?”

Past Resident
“I enjoy living at University Plaza because it has the Newman Floor, where I can live with all my friends. It is also cheaper and closer to campus than most of NIU’s dorms.”
