Student Life

NIU Law students hanging out in front of Swen Parson Hall.

NIU College of Law recognizes that in order for students to persevere through rigorous academic programs, they must balance their personal lives, taking care of themselves and their families.  As a large and diverse campus, NIU offers more to its students than just an academic education.  A variety of activities are available for students to enjoy including free music and fine arts performances, art exhibits, lectures, recreational opportunities, museums and galleries.

A complete range of services is also available to NIU students including comprehensive health care, counseling, childcare and career planning.  A bus system operates throughout the campus and the community, allowing students to live or shop in the community while maintaining easy access to the campus.

The greater NIU community provides the cultural and recreational opportunities as well as the support services that all of our students need in order to focus on their academics.

NIU provides information regarding campus security, personal and fire safety, including topics such as: crime prevention, emergency response procedures and crime reporting policies, in addition to, crime and fire statistics for the most recent three calendar years. The Annual Security Report containing security and safety information is available at or by contacting the Office of General Counsel at 815-753-1719.
