The Office of Student Orientation and Family Programs connects families with university resources, helping you navigate Northeastern’s global community. We support families throughout their Northeastern experience — including academic, administrative, and personal matters. Each year, we host several programs for family engagement.

Family Hub

The Family Hub is a centralized online hub designed for those with a Northeastern undergraduate student. Its personalized view and relevant resources make it easier than ever to navigate the university and support your student throughout their Northeastern career. All family members with an account can access:

  • Northeastern Global News coverage
  • Resource links and notifications
  • Campus maps and travel information

If your student grants you “all access”, you’ll also be able to view:

  • Course schedules
  • Grades and transcripts
  • Billing and payment information

Your student needs to request an account giving you access to their data.
