Welcome “Home” to Purdue Northwest!

We highly recommend the PNW on-campus student housing complex, University Village. Located on the Hammond campus, it offers safe, affordable, apartment-style living that is walking distance to classes, the fitness center, dining hall, library, student activities and more.

Mandatory Check-In and New International Student Orientation

One of the first things for you to do once you arrive in the US is report to the Office of Global Engagement in Classroom Office Building (CLO) 176 for immigration check-in (SEVIS).

Please bring the following:

  • Your passport, with the appropriate student/scholar visa
  • Your Certificate of Eligibility (I-20 or DS-2019)
  • Any other immigration-related documents that you have obtained, such as from the Customs and Border Patrol Agents or any previous schools you may have attended

Have questions regarding your immigration documents or SEVIS check-in? Email iss@pnw.edu.
