Disability Resource Center

The university’s Disability Resource Center works with students and faculty to provide students who qualify under the Americans With Disabilities Act with accommodations that allow them to participate fully in the activities at the university. Ordinarily, students receiving such accommodations will deliver teacher notification letters at the beginning of the semester. Students have the right to disclose or not disclose their disabilities to their instructors. For more information about the DRC, go to http://www.northeastern.edu/drc/.


WeCare offers supports for students during times of difficulty or challenge. You can find WeCare at 226 Curry Student center Monday - Friday from 8:30-5:00, call at 617-373-7591, or email wecare@northeastern.edu.

Mental Health Resources

In addition to existing mental health resources available through Northeastern’s University Health and Counseling Services (https://www.northeastern.edu/uhcs/counseling-services/), Northeastern has added Find@Northeastern, which is a “24/7 mental health support” and can be reached at 1-877-223-9477. For more information see https://www.northeastern.edu/uhcs/find-at-northeastern/. The service also makes available 5 free counseling sessions per Fall and Spring semester.

Title IX Protections and Resources

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects individuals from sex or gender-based discrimination, including discrimination based on gender-identity, in educational programs and activities that receive federal funding.

Any NU community member who has experienced such discrimination, sexual assault, relationship violence, stalking, coercion, and/or sexual harassment, is encouraged to seek help. Confidential support and guidance can be found through University Health and Counseling Services, the Northeastern Center for Spirituality, Dialogue, and Service, and the Office of Prevention and Education at Northeastern (OPEN). Note that faculty members are considered “responsible employees” at Northeastern University, meaning they are required to report all allegations of sex or gender-based discrimination to the Title IX Coordinator. For additional information and assistance please see the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion webpage.

Peer Tutoring

The Peer Tutoring Program offers a wide range of tutoring services to meet the academic needs of the undergraduate students by providing FREE peer tutoring in many of the introductory level courses including NUpath. The goal is to create synergy among students, faculty, and tutors where the student’s personal and academic growth and development is a priority. Students can book one-on-one or small group tutoring sessions through myNortheastern on the Self-Service page under TUTORING.

This summer, The Peer Tutoring Program will be offering all tutoring online. Students can still request tutoring through myNortheastern on the Self-Service page under TUTORING. The online sessions will be generated through GoBoard. Now that The Peer Tutoring Program will be online, hours will also be more flexible.
