Housing

The Bloomington Community Welcomes You!

Northwestern Health Sciences University does not offer on-campus housing, however we are here to support and assist you through your pursuit of off-campus housing. Many people in the surrounding community have housing exclusively for our students, along with apartment complexes that offer discounted rates for those attending the University. The Twin Cities has a comprehensive metro transit system that frequently stops near campus for an easy commute from local houses or apartments. Here you will find a newsletter with updated housing listings, a local apartment guide and information to aid you in your search.

The following apartments offer discounted rates and exclusive offers available to NWHSU students.
