Welcome to Our House!
NHTI offers on-campus housing to students in 3 residence halls. Housing is available to registered and eligible NHTI students. Students must be enrolled for a minimum of 9 credit hours to live on campus. Full-time professional staff members, along with student leaders (resident assistants) support students living on campus and provide opportunities for engagement within the residence halls.
Residence Life provides students with:
- Experience: Living on campus makes it easier for students to get involved in projects/clubs that influence the community. Students have opportunities to develop new leadership experiences, showcase ideas, and achieve outcomes that bolster resumes.
- Supportive relationships: Social and academic support fuse together in student housing. Students have
ongoing access to study partners and informal peer tutors.
- Amenities: Our residence halls are equipped with TV lounges, vending machines, laundry facilities, and game
spaces where residents can play pool, ping pong, or video games by signing out an Xbox.
- Diversity: Our housing hosts a dynamic segment of the campus population. Students live with people from all over the country and overseas, building relationships with students of various cultures, ethnic traditions, and gender identities.
- Convenience: Living in student housing enables students to focus on what’s really important: the future.

Residence Life Options
We offer students the option of living on campus year-round! South Hall offers a large, open kitchen space that allows residents to cook their own meals during academic breaks when dining services are limited. Students who need to remain on campus during breaks should request 12-month housing when they apply, as only students who select this option will be guaranteed to stay.
Students may request to live in a mixed-gender community and will only be placed in this community if they specifically request it. Space is limited – apply today!

Get Involved with Your Hall
The best way to be successful is to get involved in campus life! NHTI offers a variety of opportunities that allow you to explore exciting topics, meet new people, and have a positive impact on our campus community and beyond.
Each Residence Hall has a council that meets on a weekly basis to plan events, discuss community concerns, and purchase hall amenities. Each council has its own elected executive board that provides opportunities for you to take on a leadership role.
Councils have their own budget (funded through the Resident Activity Fee) that allows board members like you to learn about college purchasing processes. You’ll have the opportunity to plan larger events with the other residence hall executive boards; previous groups have planned private movie screenings, outings to Canobie Lake Park, laser tag and trampoline park events, and trips to see the Red Sox.
Each council elects its own executive board every year – look for advertisements during the first week of classes for details about meeting times and locations.
Resident assistants, or RAs, are returning students who oversee floors and groups of rooms in residence halls and work to create opportunities to challenge and support the residents in their communities. RAs are knowledgeable about campus resources, receive extensive training, and are here to assist you as you navigate the college experience.
RAs are hired using a tiered selection process, which takes place twice a year.
