The self-closeness number $N\mathcal{E}(X)$ of a space $X$ is the least integer $k$ such that any self-map is a homotopy equivalence whenever it is an isomorphism in the $n$-th homotopy group for each $n\le k$. This invariant shows the complexity of $X$, and was only studied for simply-connected spaces. We discuss the self-closeness numbers of certain non-simply-connected $X$ in this paper. As a result, we give conditions for $X$ such that $N\mathcal{E}(X)=N\mathcal{E}(\widetilde{X})$, where $\widetilde{X}$ is the universal covering space of $X$.
