Housing

NIU Residence Halls

To check into your residence hall at the start of camp, you must be registered for marching band as a class (see above) and you must notify the marching band office using the online form above. Once you have completed BOTH steps, you will be placed on a list for early check-in at no cost to you. You may check into your residence hall on Sunday, August 20, 2017 from 2–5pm. If you do not turn in the housing form by July 12th, you will be charged a per day early move-in fee.

Off Campus

Make arrangements with your landlord to move in on or before August 20, 2017. Band camp starts that evening, so please take care of your moving arrangements so you are ready for rehearsal that night. Get confirmation from your landlord in writing that you will be able to move in as specified to avoid last minute complications.

Meals

The Huskie Marching Band will provide evening meals for the band on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday night. You are on your own for breakfast and lunch. All campus dorm rooms come equipped with refrigerators and microwave ovens. Residence Hall meal plans are not active until the Thursday of band camp, so plan ahead!

Instruments and Lockers

If you need to check out a university instrument, they will be available starting at 5:30pm. Storage lockers for instruments will be available during regular business hours from the large ensemble office for a small fee. NIU can ONLY provide sousaphones, marching baritones, mellophones, and a few tenor saxophones. Members should provide all other instruments. Once you are registered for marching band as a class, you can contact the band office (see above) to check out an instrument during the summer so you can start practicing!

Uniforms

We have several performances during band camp. It is going to be hot, so rather than wear our entire uniform, we are going to perform in our summer uniform. We provide you with one free Huskie Marching Band t-shirt. YOU provide a pair of khaki shorts.  Cargo shorts are ok as long as they are a solid khaki color.

Marching Band Full Uniform

All members of the woodwind, brass and percussion section need to provide their own pair of black, MTX marching shoes as part of our marching band uniform. Please submit the form above by July 12 for priority consideration.
