Kronos Time Entry

About Kronos

Kronos is the University's official time entry system of record.

Kronos is used by biweekly-paid regular staff, temporary employees, and student employees to log hours each pay period. Monthly-paid staff, librarians, and postdocs use Kronos to record vacation, sick, and other leave time each month.

Kronos is accessible from any on-campus wired or wireless computer. To use Kronos from off-campus or University housing, you must connect to the NU VPN first.

Kronos deadlines

Note that deadlines may occur earlier around University holidays or when monthly deadlines fall on a weekend.
