Membership for Retirees

If you're retired from NIU, you can purchase or renew your retiree membership online. Simply log in to the MyRec website using your NIU credentials or your MyRec username and password. If you don't have your NIU credentials or a MyRec username and password, email recreation@niu.edu and include your full name when you were employed at NIU. You can also renew your membership in person at the Recreation Center front desk.

Membership Options

In order to qualify for these rates as an NIU retiree, you will need to email recreation@niu.edu with your full name (when you were faculty or staff). If you have previously purchased a Retiree Rec membership, you may renew in person at the NIU Recreation Center front desk.

Type Rate
Annual $120
Monthly $25
Summer $30

Get Membership

You need a OneCard to get into the Recreation Center and Chick Evans Field House. If you don't have a usable NIU OneCard, purchase a FitWell 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.
