Our Mission

The Office of Student Life enhances the student experience at NJIT by providing opportunities for student-centered learning, personal and professional growth, and resources that foster an engaged and inclusive campus community. Through advisement, advocacy, annual programs and services, we empower our students to develop the skills necessary to be leaders in the workforce.

Pandemic Recovery Updates for Student Organizations

Updated information related to NJITs response to the Coronavirus health crisis, including managing related concerns, can be found here.​ 

UPDATED Fall 2021 Guidelines: Student organizations will be able to reserve space on campus to hold indoor and outdoor events for the Fall 2021 semester beginning August 1.  Details regarding event guidelines and best practices will be communicated to all student organizations over the summer to be in compliance with NJ state guidelines as well as the expectations of the institution.  Student organizations seeking to attend a summer conference or competition must continue to register the event details in HighlanderHub for review and approval by Student Life staff.
