Believe it or not, we can't wait to welcome you to campus for Opening Week 2014!
Opening Day is Thursday, August 21, 2014. Northern Illinois University will plan move-in assistance from 9 AM to 3 PM on Thursday, August 21, 2014.
More information will become available in May 2014
Typically as you near campus on Opening Day, our NIU Police Officers assist in directing students, families, and guests through the traffic patterns to the desired residence hall. Everyone will follow the route outlined in the Unloading & Parking Maps (Available Summer 2014) .
Once arriving at the residence hall, students will go inside to check in to their room and get their key. While the student is checking in, our Team NIU Volunteers will assist in unloading the student's belongings (9 AM - 3 PM). Once belongings are unloaded, people are directed to an assigned parking lot by the NIU police officers.
