Looking for existing photos of campus?

The Office of Marketing & Communications maintains an archive of existing photography that goes back to 2009. Files are saved according to month and date of the assignment.

Please let our office know if you have trouble accessing photos. All pictures are Northern Kentucky University property and are subject to NKU usage guidelines. 

First, before attempting to access these photos, ensure you are currently connected to one of NKU’s networks:

1. Wired ethernet connection
2. NKU_Secure (wifi)
3. NKU_Encrypted (wifi)

If you are off campus at the time, you will first need to connect to NKU’s VPN.

Once you’ve connected properly to NKU’s network, follow the instructions below.

If you are logged in to your NKU computer, you will be taken directly to the photos folders. If not, a username & password prompt will appear and you will enter your NKU credentials.

You should now be connected and will be able to view two folders called “photos” and “archives.” Open and maneuver to the month and date of your assignment.

If you have any problems connecting to the resources above, please contact the IT Help desk at (859) 572-6911 for further assistance.
