The PNW community, including students, faculty and staff, has easy access to primary care with health-care facilities on our Hammond and Westville campuses.
Our community is full of contrasts: urban and rural, industrial and natural, well-established history and forward-thinking innovation. Our determined students — many of whom are the first in their families to attend college — make the most of this rich range of resources. Our Hammond campus is only 30 miles from Chicago and our Westville campus is only 15 miles from the Indiana Dunes National Park. Our impact also extends well beyond the region. Students from 30 states and 47 countries currently attend PNW, taking what they learn here and applying it all around the world.

From Spanish Club to our car-building Society of Automotive Engineers groups to student government, there are organizations for every passion and interest at PNW.
Purdue University Northwest is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
I loved having the ability to be in a sorority, as well as, have the time for studies and research projects.
It was fun to learn new things. Be apart of something different and fun.
