North Hall is the newest residence hall on the Elmhurst College campus and represents the first step of a master plan to expand this liberal-arts college over the next 20 years.

The configuration of North Hall encourages interaction among students by providing a variety of social, group-study and congregate living environments.

Each floor features four groupings of student living areas called social neighborhoods. Each neighborhood consists of 12 students housed in single or double rooms, which are clustered around living room lounges that include kitchens and access to separate male and female bathrooms. Although this three-story facility houses 120 students, the intent of these neighborhoods is to provide a family-like experience for each student.
