Availability Program

NIU students are fortunate to have one of the best condom availability programs in the country. We make a wide variety of condoms and other safer sex items available to students at no additional cost pursuant to our objective of reducing risk of sexually transmitted infection and unintended pregnancy. We also have developed a number of ways that students who want to use these items can obtain them easily.

For Personal Use

In order to facilitate access and minimize the time and expense of re-supply, we ask students to limit themselves to no more than 10 condoms at any one visit, but feel free to visit as often as you need to.

To obtain condoms for your personal use, visit any of the following locations:

  • Health Enhancement: Evans Field House (Service counter, SE entrance): Monday - Thursday 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., Friday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
  • Health Enhancement Offices (Evans Field House, Rooms 139, 154, and 121), Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Health Services, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

For Community Advisors and Student Organizations

CAs in the Residence Halls and student organizations are eligible to receive condoms in bulk to make them available for their residents or members. This program requires a short, one-time visit to Health Enhancement (Rm. 139) to register for the program. Representatives will then be eligible to receive bulk condoms throughout the school year as often as necessary to meet the needs of their residents/members.

For Student Projects

Condoms and other safer sex items are available for student class projects and student organization educational projects. Contact Health Enhancement to obtain approval for your project.
