Student Access Procedure
Northeastern students are required to show their Husky ID card and sign in with the reception desk on the 11th floor when coming to campus to study, or to meet with other students, faculty, or staff during weekday business hours. This allows us to ensure appropriate access, as well as a high level of security for everyone.
After 5 p.m., students may be asked by building security personnel to show a photo ID and sign in at the security desk in order to access elevators to the 11th-floor classrooms. Students should be prepared with appropriate identification, such as their Husky ID card or driver’s license.
If you do not have a Husky ID, one can be made and provided to you on campus. Contact Student Services to make arrangements.
Students may also schedule time on other weekday evenings for study groups and other academic purposes. A one-week notice is required and dependent on staff availability and security resources.
