It is a pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the Purdue University Northwest community. As a regional campus of the Purdue University system, we are located in the Northwest region of the state of Indiana with two campuses in Hammond and Westville, and a 330 acre Gabis Arboretum with wetlands, prairies, formal gardens and oak preserves.
This Student Handbook was created to serve as a resource and guidebook for all our students. It is a compilation of policies and procedures from the various departments and offices at both the Hammond and Westville campuses. This Handbook will acquaint you with the rules and regulations of the university and will help you navigate on your path towards a Purdue University Northwest degree!
The information in this Handbook includes but is not limited to tutoring services, student support administrative offices, the Honor Code, student employment, financial aid, the Counseling Center, the Office of the Dean of Students, and the Disability Access Center. These and other services and support programs are provided to ensure your academic and personal success. Please take advantage of them!
