Explore Your Student Housing Options

Are you in a homeless or transitional housing situation? Facing eviction? We may be able to help! The Housing Assistance Program, a NWTC partnership with Family Services, is dedicated to assisting students experiencing (or at risk) of homelessness, who are in transitional living situations, or are seeking safe, stable, and affordable housing options. We can help you stay in school, because NWTC is a Safe-to-Study place!
