Northern Illinois University


Between classes, exams, and everything else college students have to deal with, one university decided to take an unnecessary burden off their students’ schedules - keeping their devices powered up. 

When Northern Illinois University did their homework, they learned about the PowerPuck® System, and knew they had to reach out about installing this new, innovative charging system on their campus.

Working with the facilities staff and campus engineering, the PowerPuck team identified where we could bring power to the most people; the Holmes Student Center and Caribou Coffee & Einstein Bros. Bagels in Founders Library. These two locations provided the right space and opportunity for better charging experiences – where students can be free to study for an exam, collaborate on a project, or simply spend time with friends knowing that they have power right where they need it.

“Huskies can benefit from PowerPuck by having an efficient way to charge their mobile devices in between classes. It’s a great addition because students don’t want to hunt for outlets.” - Reema Abdullah, NIU Student

Now, when students at Northern Illinois University hit campus, they’ll do so with a new study partner, the PowerPuck® System, so they can spend time hitting the books without hunting for power, and continue to Charge Forward.
