Launching Monday, August 8

As part of CSUN's Web Presence Relaunch, the Portal Implementation Team has been hard at work on a new Portal for CSUN that will incorporate new technologies and the same modern design of the new campus web site. The new Portal, called the CSUN Portal, will use the same technology that powers CSUN's Mobile App, which will bring new kinds of interactivity and experiences!

We will be hosting a series of Virtual Open Forums in early August and early September where we will explore the new CSUN Portal, answer questions, and ask for your feedback that we will use to rapidly improve the CSUN Portal! The Virtual Open Forums will be:

The CSUN Portal will roll out in three phases:

  1. Frequently Used Content - August 8, 2022
  2. Improved Functionality and Integration - Fall 2022
  3. User Experience Enrichment - Spring 2023

Phase 1: Frequently Used Content - August 8, 2022

Phase 1 includes launching the new CSUN Portal design, including content most student, faculty, and staff use frequently. This will allow users to do most of the things they currently do in the myNorthridge Portal, with the current myNorthridge Portal still being available for a time to ensure that all functionality remains accessible!

Phase 2: Improved Functionality and Integration - Fall 2022

In this phase, the CSUN Portal will gain better organization and categorization of resources and information. While much of this will be present in Phase 1, extra care and attention will be paid to user feedback and how the capabilities of the new platform will allow for better experiences in the CSUN Portal.

Phase 3: User Experience Enrichment - Spring 2023

In this phase, functionality will be added to the CSUN Portal to improve the user experience beyond what the current myNorthridge Portal is capable of. Think things like improved notifications and updates, targeted messaging, and intractable elements that highlight information about your path at CSUN. 

We're so excited to share more about the CSUN Portal and can't wait for you to experience it! We would like to extend our heartfelt thank you's to the members of the Portal Implementation Team, and to all the CSUN students, faculty, and staff without whose input and work this project would not be possible. Thank you all!

Updates

Update 5/17

We have been making steady progress on the updated designs and organization of the new Portal. To that end, we would like to thank the campus community members who helped out by participating in the card sorting activity and the vote for the name of the new campus Portal. Your feedback will be an important part of helping us improve overall experience.

Update 6/28

The results have been tabulated, and the new name for the campus portal is CSUN Portal. Thanks again to the more than 2,000 campus community members who participated in our naming survey. Work continues on the design and implementation of the CSUN Portal, and we look forward to providing you with a sneak peak of what it will look like when it launches in late July.

Update 7/21

User guides are available for students, faculty, and staff, and the links can be found in the main navigation. These user guides will continue to be updated as more features are implemented and as the campus community provides feedback. We are also excited to share some screenshots for the new CSUN Portal home screens:
