Be who you are among peers.
Join a diverse and supportive student body.
At Northeastern Illinois University, we welcome students from every walk of life. Here, you’ll be able to create the college experience you always imagined. Immersed in our diverse campus community, you’ll meet other students whose unique passions will inform your own.
We value community
Our bustling campus allows you to embrace dozens of different clubs and organizations, plus our academic centers, such as the Student Center for Science Engagement, give you a space to express yourself as you collaborate with other students, study together, and even get tutoring help.
A hub for students
If you choose to live in the heart of campus, the Student Union will be just steps away, where you can spend time with friends in our lounges, dining halls and meeting rooms. This is also where many lectures, concerts, dances and other activities take place, so you’ll never have a dull moment.
An arts-centered campus
You can attend film screenings and theatre productions throughout the year. You can even participate in the Community Dance and Community Music programs. A playwriting contest and festival takes place each year, and the Fine Arts Center Gallery allows you to not only view artwork but attend artist talks and workshops.
Study abroad is easy
NEIU empowers students to step beyond campus and pursue study abroad opportunities. You can spend an entire semester at one of our partner universities or participate in a faculty-led study tour for a shorter period of time during the summer or another break. Picture yourself in Europe, Asia or Central America, embracing the culture and creating life-long memories.
