Northeastern Illinois University El Centro Opening Delayed to Sept. 20

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Northeastern Illinois University’s new El Centro facility will open to students Saturday, September 20, 2014, instead of on the official first day of school, Saturday, August 25, 2014. The construction of El Centro, adjacent to the Kennedy expressway at 3390 N. Avondale Ave., faced unavoidable construction delays, attributed to an especially harsh winter, now resulting in an opening date four weeks later than anticipated.
