Our campus family thrives in comfortable, open living spaces that encourage a spirit of togetherness and collaboration. Dorms are full-featured, with excellent wi-fi, quality furnishings, laundry, kitchens, and plenty of lounge space. Our incredible Residence Life team puts on over 200 events every year, so there’s always something to do, and there’s always someone to talk to. You’ll enjoy a menu of fresh, locally-sourced meals at Lombard Dining Hall, or order delivery straight to your room from the Fels Cafe!
Living on Campus
Our residence halls are located in lower campus. The dorms range from traditional rooms, suite-style living, and modern apartments, and 80% of our students live on campus. Shamie Hall is where most students begin their journey at Nichols. Shamie is the largest residence hall on campus and features private bathrooms in each room. When I was living in Shamie, my friends and I used to go up to the third floor. We would sit at the end of the hallway, and we would make so many friends from just sitting there. During my junior year, I lived in Remillard Hall, which offers suite-style living. When I lived in Rem, I lived with five of my best friends, and we would have movie and karaoke night, which was the best time ever. Now I live in Copper Beech II. The Copper Beech apartments offer apartment-style living primarily for seniors. Each suite has a private bathroom, full kitchen, and living area. Copper Beach I and II are connected by the quad, where students gather for games and activities throughout the year. Now, since living in Copper, my roommates and I have family dinner every Wednesday night. And I love it so much, and it's super sweet.
