NSO Lodging

Explore on- and off-campus summer NSO lodging options

Students attending in-person orientation between June 6–July 21 are invited to stay on-campus as it’s a great way to meet other students, enjoy some casual time and easily participate in all of our evening events.

Transfer students may want this convenient option the night before their one-day program starts, to be ready to check in to NSO in the morning.

Once students make an NSO reservation and have a confirmed orientation date, they can make their reservation for NSO on-campus housing.

The cost of housing on campus during NSO is $46 per night and will be billed to the student's IU bursar account by Residential Programs and Services after their stay. There is no obligation to keep this reservation, and the student will not be charged unless they actually check into housing during NSO.

Special Hotel Packages for NSO Parents and Guests

Looking for an off campus option prior to your orientation date, or a place for your parents or other NSO guests?
