About Us

Our Story

Move-in is stressful. As RezEssentials is a student-run business, we’ve been in your shoes. Coming to campus, either for the first time as a new student or as a returning Wildcat, should mean lounging on the Lakefill or taking selfies in front of the Arch; not lugging a printer up three flights of stairs.

Since our inception in July 2013, our goal has been to make our customers’ residential hall experiences as seamless as possible. By providing delivery of bulky, difficult-to-transport goods straight to your Northwestern Housing room, we hope to take at least one stressful errand off your plate.

At best, other companies may deliver to campus. For you, that still means picking up your goods from the mail center and carrying them to your residential hall and up to your room. We go the extra mile (or the extra stairs in this case) so that your products will be waiting for you when you open your door.

Our exclusive partnership with Northwestern is the byproduct of our impressive customer service and seamless operational efficiency. No other provider has the same trust from the university and unwavering support from Northwestern Residential Services.

Ultimately, we’re a group of passionate students who understand that your time and Northwestern experience are limited and valuable. We’re motivated by a simple, shared purpose: To refocus move-in on the joy of coming back home.
