Membership for Alumni
In order to qualify for these rates as an NIU alumni you will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name (when you were a student). If you have previously purchased an Alumni membership you may renew in person at the NIU Recreation Center front desk.
You need a OneCard to get in the Recreation Center and Chick Evans Field House. If you don't have a usable NIU OneCard, purchase a Recreation membership and bring your receipt to the NIU OneCard office within three business days to purchase a new card.
A new card costs $5 and can be purchased only with cash or a check. Bring a valid photo ID. The OneCard office is open Monday - Friday from 8:15 a.m.-4 p.m. during the school year.
