Facility Information

The Northern Reception and Classification Center (NRC) functions as the major adult male intake and processing unit for the entire state. The NRC contains 1,800 beds in 24 housing units. Within the NRC is also the Stateville Minimum Security Unit.

Offenders admitted to the NRC are in reception status.  They remain in reception status until they are transferred to a permanent institution.  Privileges and movement are limited at the reception center.  There is no set time frame for processing an inmate; the processing varies per inmate.
