The best way for you to handle the stresses of collegiate life is through fitness and we want you to develop lifelong healthy habits. In order to encourage healthy behavior we created the Student Recreation Center. Fee-paying NIU students are automatically members. Simply use your NIU OneCard ID to enter.

Use the fitness machines, participate in intramural sports, swim laps, rent a court, or join Iron Huskie – a free rec-rewards program that offers prizes for reaching fitness milestones. More importantly, Campus Rec gives you the tools you need to develop healthy habits and enable a balanced outlook.

Campus facilities include:

Group classes, nutrition coaching, personal trainers and more are available for a fee. 

Campus Recreation is a department within the Division of Student Affairs.
