We hope you find this initial information helpful as you prepare to embark on graduate studies at Northeastern. If you have any questions that are not addressed in what follows, please contact [email protected].

New Student Information

The following is important information for you to know before you begin your graduate program at Northeastern in Toronto. The College of Professional Studies programs will begin the Winter 2022 graduate quarter on Monday, January 10, 2022, and the College of Engineering program will begin the Spring 2022 graduate semester on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

Activate Your myNortheastern Account

You will find most functions and services related to your academic experience at Northeastern (e.g. course registration, your course schedule, student accounts, etc.) in the myNortheastern portal under the Self-Service tab. You can also use your myNortheastern account to access your student email account, powered by Office 365. We encourage you to start checking your Northeastern email regularly.

Admitted students should receive information on activating their myNortheastern account by email. If you have not received this information, or if your activation token has expired, please contact our Office of Information Technology Services.

If you are a newly admitted student looking for information or support for your study permit application, please visit the website for the Office of Global Services, in the Getting Started and Canada sections.

Managing Your Email to Receive Important Communications

It is important that you get into the habit of logging into your myNortheastern account to check your new Northeastern email account. Official communications from the university will always be delivered to your Northeastern email address. In addition to the Outlook platform, your Northeastern email is connected to Office 365 which provides you a whole host of powerful collaboration tools including Teams, OneDrive, Sharepoint, and many more.

Health Insurance

Due to COVID-19 and the current travel restrictions, international students who will start remotely do NOT need to purchase health insurance prior to their arrival in Canada.

International students in Canada are required to obtain a comprehensive health insurance plan for the duration of their stay in Canada. When the travel restrictions are lifted, and before you plan your trip, please enrol yourself for health insurance from Guard Me.

After successfully enroled, please print a copy of your insurance card and take it with you.

Husky Student ID Card

All students will be required to display their Husky Student ID card while on campus. You will need your card to access campus as well as an elevator card. If you have not received your Husky Student ID card, you can submit a request for the card to be produced by completing this form.

Husky Cards will be available for pick-up at the scheduled campus Orientation. You must present a photo ID (passport or driver’s license) upon pick-up.

The first Husky Card is issued free of charge. Replacement cards are $25.00 (USD).

Update: Due to the large volume of requests, cards will no longer be mailed. There’s an option to pick them up during Orientation Week. Current/Returning students are invited to pick up their cards on campus on Wednesday, January 5th between 10:00am and 4:00pm. New January intake students will be sent a separate schedule for Husky Card pick-up with the Orientation agenda.

Students planning to arrive in Toronto at a later date are encouraged to submit a request and can arrange to pick up their card prior to their first in-person class.

Please email [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.

Note: All students, faculty, contractors, volunteers and staff at the Toronto campus will be expected to submit proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to access the campus. Please click here to learn more.

NU Toronto Campus New Student Orientation for all new students will take place virtually on January 5th, 2022, with the aim to introduce students to the Toronto staff team and resources available to Northeastern students.

Printing and Scanning

Printing is available on campus and requires a Husky Card for access.

Students are annually provided a limited amount of free printing. The annual credit does not rollover from year to year.

Printing Costs
At the start of the academic year, students receive a $120 printing credit on their Husky Cards.

Printer Type                     Paper Size             Cost

Black and white               8.5×11                    $0.10
Colour                                8.5×11                    $0.30

The cost of printing is automatically deducted from the student’s printing credits.
Students can check their remaining print allowance by logging in to myNortheastern and using the “Husky Card Account Balances” and “Husky Card Account Transactions” applications.

For scanning needs, students can use the Konica Minolta on the 46th floor. For other printing needs, students can use HP printers.

Should you require printing or scanning assistance while on campus, reach out to the Operations Team.
