NIU works to ensure that all students, faculty and staff enjoy the most productive and positive experience possible on campus while engaged in living, learning and teaching – a mission enhanced through information that is quickly accessed via phone apps.
We recommend four apps in particular:
The NIU Mobile app provides links to everything from campus resources, event calendars, tech guides and residence hall laundry machines status updates to emergency information, campus maps and social media. Also receive notifications about important dates, campus events and information.
The #CampusClear app is part of Protecting the Pack. The app allows students and employees who are coming to campus to submit daily wellness checks for COVID-19. Recent research has shown that daily self-reporting of symptoms, used along with campus policies and procedures, can have a meaningful impact on keeping our campus community safe.
The NIU Safe app strives to keep everyone safe by sending NIU Alerts, Safety Warnings and Community Awareness Messages directly to subscribed phones. The app also provides safety features for students and employees, available 24/7.
The Bus Tracker app pinpoints where the Huskie Safe Line and the Huskie Buses are at all times and offers estimated times of arrival.
