myNortheastern Services and Links on the Move
When students return from the winter break, they can expect the myNortheastern portal to look a little different. The services and links will be retired from the student portal as of Tuesday, January 4. Students are already accessing these resources—including email accounts, academic schedules, course registration, financial services, and more—on the Student Hub. Students can log into the Hub at me.northeastern.edu and navigate to the Resources page, the primary location on the Hub where the portal links and resources now live.
