Northwest Lifestyle

Northwest Living

The active, but laid-back lifestyle is alive and well in the Boise Valley.

NNU is situated in a best-of-all-worlds location. Just minutes away from the urban lifestyle of Boise as well as a myriad of outdoor activities, NNU is the place for those who want to be in the thick of things and those who want to get away from it all.

Life in the Northwest

From the cultural to the quirky to the adventurous to the chill,
the activities around NNU’s campus offer something for everyone.

Get Outdoors

Take a short hour’s drive to unending hiking, biking, camping, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and hot-spring-hunting opportunities.

Experience Culture

Picnic at the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, visit the Boise Art Museum, take a stroll through Hyde Park Street Fair or attend a sporting event or one of many big name concerts that come through town.

Live Into The Trendy

Enjoy a cup of locally roasted coffee or homemade ice cream just down the street, spend a morning bargain hunting at one of the many thrift shops close to campus, explore “The Village” at Meridian to fill all of your upscale shopping and culinary needs, gather a group of friends to test your problem-solving skills in an Escape Room, or spend your Saturday morning stocking up on local produce at the Farmers’ Market.
