Incident Reporting

Incident Reporting Explained

Northern Illinois University has several incident reports available to report various types of incidents occurring on and off campus. Some of these reports allow you to report a wide variety of incidents, while others are for very specific incident types. Filing any of these incident reports places the university on notice of an incident which occurred. Filing a false incident report, constitutes a violation of the NIU Student Code of Conduct and also other applicable university policies. 

All people filing an incident report must be aware that these reports are for reporting non-critical or non-emergency incidents. If you have an emergency situation, please contact the NIU Police at 815-753-1212 or 911 for on campus emergencies or the City of DeKalb Police at 815-748-8400 or 911 for off campus emergencies.
