Doing Business with Northeastern

Welcome to Northeastern University!

This website contains information for companies who are doing business or wish to do business with Northeastern University. Northeastern is a diverse community and requires a great deal of resources to keep it running well. Your help in providing these resources is greatly appreciated. For your convenience, an informational brochure can be viewed and printed as needed.

It is very likely that a market exists on campus for the commodities or services provided by your company.  Due to the decentralized nature of our operations, staff within the NU Procurement office may not always be able to provide specifics around who to market your goods and services.  Our suggested approach is to determine one of the following: 

  • If you sell a commodity or services that the University regularly contracts for, we ask that you submit your name and product information in the event that the Procurement Department issues a new RFP or RFQ. 
  • If you sell any other type of commodity or services, we suggest you develop a marketing and sales strategy to target specific schools or departments on campus as customers.  Every NU school and department should maintain a website containing a staff directory that can be leveraged for promotional purposes.
