Northern Illinois University’s web presence is an important part of our brand identity and, for many, the main channel of communication with NIU.
Websites on the niu.edu domain or under the control and use of Northern Illinois University must adhere to the branding requirements detailed in the NIU Web Standards.
Any website not using the standard university template must be submitted to the Marketing Clearinghouse for review, both at the design concept stage and prior to launch. Design concepts may be submitted as screen captures or PDFs. A development/quality assurance link should be submitted for live access at least seven days prior to launch.
