All-New myNortheastern Portal to Debut in Fall 2017!


Northeastern University is committed to improving the university portal experience for all members of our community. There were months of planning, development and testing, as well as significant student involvement in this process. We are proud of the new portal and plan to release it to the Northeastern community later this fall under its new name, “myNortheastern.”

Earlier this year, we selected Liferay, the world’s leading open source portal product, to be the platform for the next generation of our portal. We worked with design partners to define the ideal portal in line with business and student expectations, shaping it into an individually customizable, global, dynamic environment that empowers and enhances the Northeastern experience. Our new portal will have a more intuitive and modernized look and feel while retaining existing functionality.

The first phase of the project is to migrate the myNortheastern portal into Liferay and provide the Northeastern community with an improved portal experience. We are excited to announce that the first phase will be completed in a few months, and that the new portal will debut in late Fall.

Next Steps

This portal update will only be the first in a long line of upgrades coming to myNortheastern. This is a multi-year project with the intent of not just providing a one-time experience update but to continue to develop, improve and transform myNortheastern into a smart, agile and intuitive portal with aims to constantly exceed your hopes and expectations.

We will continue to use your feedback as a guide and make constant improvements in line with your desired portal experience. This process will not happen overnight, but the thoughtful improvements and design will be well worth the wait.

We will continue to provide updates with new information and developments as they become available. We hope you are as excited as we are for our all-new myNortheastern!
