Students,

As the calendar flips to December and the fall term winds down, IT Services continues to support Northeastern students. Below in the final Tech Update of 2020, read about finding final exam schedules in the Student Hub, declaring your Learning Location status for winter/spring, and more.

For any technology assistance, the IT Service Desk will continue to be available 24 hours a day, all throughout the holidays and the intersession. Please reach out through the Tech Service Portal, by email at help@northeastern.edu, or by phone at 617.373.HELP [4357].

Best wishes for a successful end of term, and to a restful winter break.

Set Your Learning Location in the Hub

Indicate your learning location for the Winter/Spring 2021 term in the Student Hub by December 31. When you visit the Student Hub at me.northeastern.edu, you’ll find a module under your NUID that asks you to declare your Learning Location Status. Sharing this information will help the university provide the maximum number of classroom spaces for students who wish to attend classes in-person through dynamic scheduling.

Please note, this will not update your status in the Test Scheduler. Please visit the Test Scheduler directly to update your status to Primarily Remote or Primarily In Person.

Final Exams are Here

Final exam schedules are now available in the Student Hub. All finals will be remote. While every effort is made to make sure these are accurate, the instructor is the final source of truth.

New Community for COVID-19 Questions

A new community for COVID-19 Questions is now live in Communities at Northeastern. Join this community to get the most up to date answers and information about COVID-19 testing, Hybrid NUflex, the Dynamic Scheduler, or other safety measures that help Protect the Pack.

Find Communities in the Student Hub, under “Stay Connected at NU.”

Strike Out Bad Passwords

Is your Northeastern password RedSox#1? That’s a popular (and therefore easily guessed) password in the Boston area. Protect your personal information by using a password that’s longer and more difficult to guess. Choose something only you would know – your friends probably know you’re a Big Papi fan.
