NGU recognizes the valuable role on-campus housing plays in the overall university student experience and is dedicated to providing students an opportunity to continue this practice. NGU is committed to providing our residential students a healthy and inviting environment.
Students living in the residence halls do so with the awareness that exposure to COVID-19 may occur. The University has established isolation spaces for those who test positive and are unable to return to their homes. However, due to space limitations, students with confirmed positive cases will likely need to isolate themselves for the required 10-day period in their residence hall rooms. Roommates in these circumstances will always need to wear a face-covering for 14 days. Please thoroughly read the circumstances and requirements for isolation and quarantine in the protocols section.
Common areas will be adjusted to accommodate physical distancing. Students are expected to clean their shared bathroom areas in their residence halls per the suggested disinfection guidelines provided by the CDC. NGU performs regular health and safety checks in the residence halls to ensure a positive environment for all. NGU Residence Life leadership will share details in your New Student Orientation focused on living in our residence halls.
Request for Housing Exemption Accommodation
Should a student have concerns about living on campus in residential housing, a housing accommodation may be requested. To qualify for an accommodation, the student will be asked to provide medical documentation that demonstrates an increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 as defined by the CDC guidelines. The University is committed to working with students to provide a residential space that meets their needs.
Commuting students will enjoy their usual experience coming and going from campus to accomplish their coursework and participate in the life of the campus under the same University conditions and protocols for COVID-19.
Students and guests will enjoy all-you-care-to-eat meals in Todd Dining Hall!

Add one of our desserts or homemade soups and your meal is complete.
Enhanced and increased frequency of cleaning will keep areas sanitized for the NGU community.

Section 100 will be reserved as “mask-preferred.” This seating area will only be available for students, faculty, and staff that choose to wear their approved face-covering for the entire chapel experience.
