The NIU website is one of the main ways we communicate with people on campus, as well as with external audiences. The web team ensures that sites in the niu.edu domain are up to date and easy to use.

We can update a site or create a new site in Cascade for you. In some cases, we'll grant access to Cascade so you can make your own updates. We provide training to help you work with us and use our system. Read more about web support and design or complete the website update request form.

Please note: We offer different options for faculty websites. Learn about web support for faculty.
