international students work in a computer lab

This truly global university is enriched and transformed by a vibrant international student community. At Northeastern, close to 14 percent of the student body is from one of 125 countries outside the United States, making ours one of the most multicultural campuses in the nation.

In addition to the network of support that every Northeastern student receives, we maintain a variety of offices and initiatives to ensure that international students gain the richest possible experience.

Among these, the International Student & Scholar Institute offers a range of programs and services that foster intercultural awareness, and helps international students navigate the complexities of immigration regulations and procedures.

The Office of Student Activities sustains Northeastern’s 280 student organizations, including nearly 50 cultural or spiritual groups.
