NLC Housing

Why Choose the Historic Oroville Inn?

The Historic Oroville Inn has been housing students from the Northwest Lineman College since our grand reopening in 2017. You have options for where you’ll live in Oroville.

We know from housing multiple Lineman College students since 2017 that being together with others who are attending NLC helps our students succeed. Our NLC students study together, eat together, work together, and spend their off time hiking, fishing and attending local events. Many of the NLC graduates look back on their time at the Historic Oroville Inn as one of their favorite parts of their program.  The peer support makes a significant difference during the intensity of the NLC experience. Our living environment supports strong academics and peer support!  As a result, our student population at the Inn consistently makes it through to graduation, whereas the general NLC student population tends to have more attrition.

We welcome you to choose the Historic Oroville Inn as your Lineman College housing solution.
