University Events

Guidance on events will continue to evolve over the course of the summer and will be subject to change as the situation warrants. Below is an overview of guidelines for in-person events during Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois plan:

  • There are no capacity requirements for indoor or outdoor events.
  • As of 7/28/21, NIU requires all employees, students and guests, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask indoors while on campus.
  • Outdoor gatherings on NIU property require university permission.
  • Food and beverage is permissible at both indoor and outdoor events.
  • Student organizations that wish to host an event should use the event-registration process in HuskieLink.

The university continues to encourage the use of outdoor spaces whenever possible.
