At Your Service
The Northwest University Library is staffed with friendly, knowledgeable librarians and staff. Librarians will help you navigate the resources housed in the DV Hurst Library as well as those available online. During the academic year, the library is open until 11:30 pm to accommodate students' schedules.
There are 3 major computer labs and multiple computer workstations on campus for students' use.
Students can visit the Writing Center to get help with their academic work. Peer tutors are available to assist students in clearly communicating their ideas in written form. Peer tutors prove to be a valuable resource as they not only understand the writing process, but as fellow students they understand the pressures of academic life.
At the Fitness Center, a wide-range of weight training and cardio machines are available for students to use to stay physically fit, free with NU Student ID card.
