No, University of Idaho has leased the entire property which was formally known as the FairBridge Inn.

As this property is no longer a hotel, the NCC will ONLY house university students and staff.

It is our goal to create a fun and inclusive residential experience for all who apply. The NCC will allow us to continue to provide residential housing for as many students as possible.

This includes having Resident Assistant living at the NCC and an Area Coordinator/Resident Director offering supervision and support to our students.
