Welcome to the official source of information and communication about the unification of Purdue University Calumet and Purdue University North Central.

Pending the approval of the Higher Learning Commission, Purdue University Northwest (PNW) will be established through the unification of Purdue University Calumet and Purdue University North Central.

Students enrolled and admitted for semesters beginning Fall 2016 will be students of Purdue University Northwest, a regional university within the Purdue University system with two campuses in Hammond and Westville, Indiana.

Fifth largest university in Indiana

Students walking by Founders Plaza at Purdue CalumetOnce unification is complete, Purdue University Northwest will be the fifth largest public university in Indiana, enrolling approximately 16,000 students and offering more than 45 graduate and undergraduate programs of study on two campuses. Purdue Northwest’s larger scale will provide enhanced opportunities for students, such as more choices in programs, a wider variety of shared online courses and more options for community engagement and professional development.

More resources for student success

By combining these two strong institutions, more resources will be available for educational quality and student success.
