The Hub

A highly personalized, experience-driven platform that serves as a daily home base for Northeastern students.

Designed for the Student Experience, by the Students

The Hub was designed with the global and mobile student experience at its core – and the digital experience continues to transform with a focus on students’ changing needs. No one speaks to the Northeastern student experience better than Northeastern students themselves. That’s why the Student Hub has always included student input throughout the planning, designing, and development processes; and will continue to do so as it evolves.  

Through surveys, interviews, and focus groups, Northeastern students and community members have identified features that provide the biggest impact on students’ university lives. This feedback, in combination with the digital experience student program, has directly shaped key features such as the Discover page, Notifications, News and Events, and more.

How has the digital experience student team contributed to the Hub?  

The digital experience student program has provided students with the opportunity to work directly with IT Services on the development of the Student Hub.

Their knowledge of UX research, user-interface design, digital accessibility, front-end development, and data analytics is helping to develop a richer virtual student experience. 

Can students personalize their Student Hub information?

Update student profile information on the Me page and choose what information is visible to other students. Search, connect, and follow others with similar interests and experiences using the Discover page. The Discover page will also recommend clubs and organizations, based on who the student is following and which groups they’re already a member of or following. On the News and Announcements page, select topics to customize the news feed.

What information can be found on the Resources page?

The Resources page features a wide range of valuable campus resources, links, and information vital to students’ Northeastern University experience including careers, class registration, employment, academics, financial services, graduation, health, counseling, housing, dining, IT support, library, research, and more.
