Technology Labs

Students with laptops sit around a table and collaborate on a project while look at two large monitors

Need a place to get away and study? NIU's modern technology labs and study lounges provide access to common applications like Microsoft Office, web browsers, and Adobe Creative Suite. Most locations also have workstations accommodating visually impaired students with software like JAWS. And with NIU Wireless and Anywhere Printing, NIU's study lounges are perfect for anyone who prefers to BYOD (bring your own device). Find a lab that's open near you.
