University Events

Guidance on events will continue to evolve over the course of the spring semester. For January and February, all events are to be held virtually. Once the university communicates that in-person events are able to resume, NIU anticipates using the following guidelines intended to provide opportunities to safely interact with your fellow Huskies outside of the academic environment:

  • Indoor events will be limited to 50 people. If an indoor event has a capacity of less than 50 persons, attendance is limited to 50% of the room’s capacity.
  • Outdoor gatherings can have multiple groups of up to 50 people as long as groups maintain a distance of at least 30 feet from each other.
  • Physical distancing guidelines must be followed at all events, indoors and out.
  • Face masks must be worn at any gathering conducted indoors or outdoors.
  • Shared objects should be limited and thoroughly cleaned between uses.
  • Visitors are expected to take the same precautions we ask of our Huskie students and employees.
Some buildings may not be open to guests depending on regulations at the time of your visit. Check out our Campus Operations information before you come!
