If you are taking classes in person or online at National Louis University, we want your experience to be as convenient and rewarding as possible. NLU's Office of Student Experience provides a wide range of services and information for students.
Student Experience is available 8:30am-7pm Monday - Thursday, and 8:30am-5pm on Fridays. To reach us, call 888.658.8632 x3568.
For students attending Illinois campuses, all weather related closings will be posted through the Emergency Closing Center (ECC). If the ECC does not list a campus as closed, the campus is open for regularly scheduled classes, events and business. You can call the ECC at 847.238.1234 or visit www.emergencyclosings.com.
In the event of a non-weather related campus closing of any NLU Illinois campus, students would receive notification via the NLU Emergency Notification Service. By default, students are registered to receive emergency messages by phone at the primary contact number registered in Banner. Students may log-in to Banner at any time to see or update the primary contact number listed. Additional emergency contact numbers, such as a business, mobile or text, can also be added at any time. To register your preferences, visit http://oit.nl.edu/en and follow the instructions provided.
For information on emergency closings for non-Illinois campuses, please call your local campus.
