Greetings from the NNU Alumni House! As you are well aware, the COVID-19 virus is changing many things about our daily lives. And here at NNU is no different. That said, we are suspending all room reservations at the Wiley Alumni House until further notice. We hope that this is only temporary but your current reservation falls within our current time frame. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please feel free to reach out to and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

If you end up still needing a place to stay in the Nampa area, we recommend the alumni run Perfect Moments Bed & Breakfast in Nampa which can be reached at (208) 461-7071 or As of March 16, they were still taking guests. You can also mention that you have an NNU connection to a lot of the local hotels as some offer a discount. Blessings on you!

Wiley Alumni House History

This place has special meaning for all alumni. The house was built in 1922 for NNC's first president, H. Orton Wiley. Funds were provided by Dean Olive Winchester when the house was deeded to NNC. Since that time, the house has seen many occupants including students in the Home Economics Department, Nursing students, and cadets. The Alumni House is the oldest building in its original form left on campus and sits at the corner of Dewey and Ivy streets.

The Alumni House underwent extensive restoration in 1983 and is now listed on the National Historic Registry.
