Frequently Asked Questions

I previously attended NIU but did not graduate. Can I purchase an alumni membership?

No. Alumni memberships are available for graduates of NIU only.

Where can I park when I come to work out?

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 Gabel Pool 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.
