Where can I park when I come to either the Student Recreation Center or Chick Evans Field House?
The parking lots in front of both the Student Recreation Center and Chick Evans Field House are for persons with blue and yellow parking passes. Except for metered parking, permits are required to park on campus. All Campus Recreation members for the Student Recreation Center, Field House, and pools must pick up a parking form at the Student Recreation Center Service Counter, and complete and submit it to Parking Services prior to purchasing a parking pass. There is a parking pass discount for Campus Recreation members.
Metered parking spaces are also available at the Student Recreation Center and are designated by large white signs. Anyone can park in the metered parking spots. Fees for metered spots are $.25 per 15 minutes for up to two hours. The meter for the designated spots is located to the left of the front doors of the Student Recreation Center.
Parking along Stadium Drive East is for blue, yellow, and brown permit parking. Lot K, located south of Stadium Drive, is designated for yellow, brown, and orange permit parking.
Visit Parking Services for more information and parking maps.
Can I use the pools in Anderson and Gabel Halls? Yes. Pool passes are available for purchase at the Student Recreation Center.
I am taking classes this semester. Does that make me eligible for a student membership? No. Faculty and staff taking classes on NIU campuses are not eligible for student privileges.
How do I cancel my payroll deduction? To stop payroll deduction for a Campus Recreation membership, you must fill out a Stop/Start Payroll Deduction form on the Human Resource Services website. Please notify the Campus Recreation Office Support Specialist upon completion of the form.
I am a staff member in the Division of Student Affairs. What is the Fit Release program? The Fitness Release Program allows full-time staff members, with the written approval of their director and supervisor, to receive a maximum of 30 minutes of release time during an agreed upon time period (most frequently around noon) on each of three days per week for designated exercise activities at specific times. Please visit www.stuaff.niu.edu/stuaff/division_employee_resources/fitness/index.shtml for specifics on the Fit Release program.
