Facility Reservations

NIU Campus Recreation would like to thank you for your interest in reserving our recreational facilities. Groups or individuals are eligible to reserve and rent facility space in the Student Recreation Center, Chick Evans Field House, Gabel or Anderson Pools, Outdoor Recreation Sports Complex, and the outdoor basketball courts.

All groups must review the following important information below to guide you through the reservation process. Please contact us with any questions.


  • Events must be scheduled no less than 15 business days (3 weeks) in advance. 
  • Please note that submitting a facility request or inquiring about space availability does not guarantee a reservation.
  • Campus Recreation staff will determine the viability of all requests. Every effort is made to ensure there is adequate informal recreational space for the Campus Recreation patrons.
  • A signed contract must be submitted at least 1 week prior to event or reservation to avoid a potential cancellation.
  • A reservation can be canceled up to 48 hours prior to the reservation without additional penalty.
