Welcome to Off-Campus & Non-Traditional Student Services at Northern Illinois University!
Our department is a resource center and lounge space for any type of NIU student. Although we welcome anyone to our office and lounge space, we focus our attention and expertise on students who live off campus, commute from home, have children, are military students, are online learners, and/or are over the age of 24.
Our staff is dedicated to assisting students in finding the resources they need to be successful in their NIU studies, whether those resources involve locating housing options, carpooling opportunities, locker space, free coffee, or computer access. Please visit or contact our office in the lower level of the Holmes Student Center, rooms 023J and 023K. We would be more than happy to assist you!
IMPORTANT NEW INFORMATION: Our office will be going through a process of reorganization for the rest of the academic calender year. Please read this important announcement from the University regarding the upcoming merger of OCNTSS and MSS!
