Orientation

Family Orientation

Congratulations, your student has selected to attend Northeastern Illinois University, a public comprehensive university with locations throughout Chicago that provides an exceptional environment for learning, teaching, and scholarship. We prepare a diverse community of students for leadership and service in our region and in a dynamic multicultural world.

Many students have a great deal of support during their journey to this University and this support should continue. The encouragement and support you offer family members attending NEIU are important factors that play a role in ensuring their academic success. The more you know about the higher education experience, the better you will be able to help your family members achieve their educational goals. Family Orientation is designed to give you the opportunity to learn more about NEIU and what your student will experience, ask questions of staff, and take a campus tour. This experience will also provide information about various academic programs and services available to your student(s).


Complimentary parking is available on levels 4 and 5 of the Parking Facility during family orientation. Click here for driving directions and a campus map.
