Residence hall life

The residence hall at NAU's Nizhoni Academy is alive with Excitement! For maximum security, Nizhoni Academy students will be housed in a dedicated hall. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. Students will be assigned a roommate. Each room has individual beds, desks, chairs, and ample drawer and closet space. Laundry facilities and cable televisions are available in the residence hall. Tennis, basketball and volleyball courts are nearby. The residence hall lounge is a great place to meet, take a break, or just hang out.


Nizhoni Academy students will be provided two meals a day and NAU dining dollars to supplement the additional meal. All meals offer a variety and selection of tasty foods, prepared fresh daily. The "all you care to eat" includes choices from delicious entrees, salad bars, and beverages. The Nizhoni Academy practices sustainability and provides each student with a reusable water bottle at the beginning of the program.
