Residence hall move-in day is an experience you'll always remember! We're very excited to welcome you to the NIU community as a new Huskie.

A little rain at the start of move-in day didn't keep us from welcoming our Huskies home! See photos from Welcome Days 2016.

Here's some things to remember in the days ahead:

  • Where to Eat: You can begin using your meal plan on Friday, August 19 at any open dining location on campus. You'll also have $75 Flex Dollars that you can use at locations accepting flex dollars.
  • Enrolled in Classes: If you aren't already, make sure you are enrolled in classes by Sunday, August 28. Otherwise, you will have to move out of your room. We'll remind you about this during move in if you're not enrolled.
  • What2do@NIU: Check out upcoming events at NIU and the DeKalb area.
