NSU Campus

A campus you can feel good about.
You’ll find no more beautiful setting to stroll between classes than the NSU campus. With its mix of historic buildings and modern facilities, the park-like campus is considered one of the most beautiful in the Midwest. In the last five years, we’ve invested $36 million in campus improvements. And the buildings and grounds are meticulously maintained year-round.
In addition to the physical beauty, our campus surrounds you with a sense of security.  We are dedicated to the safety of our students and faculty.  And it shows in the extremely low crime rate.  Moreover, downtown Aberdeen is just a short walk from NSU.  Rated the No. 2 best small college town in America by USA Today College, this friendly city has lots to do and feels like a natural extension of the NSU campus.
 
The beauty, integrity and utility of Northern's buildings is meticulously maintained and augmented. To learn more, please visit Campus Improvements.
