Any NIU department may request use of Recreation space for a discounted rental fee. Departments are also responsible for costs directly related to the rental. These may include:
Detailed costs are estimated in a rental agreement. Departments must provide an active university account number for billing before their reservation is finalized.
If you have any questions, contact the assistant director for facility operations at 815-753-9353.
Departments can request custom room/equipment setup during an event preparation meeting. We’ll attempt to accommodate requests, if feasible.
Groups can provide their own equipment with approval from Recreation.
We’ll determine staffing based on an assessment of programming and facility needs:
Depending on the number of participants/spectators, we may schedule additional staff.
Departments can cancel without penalty up to 48 hours in advance. If cancelling within 48 hours of the event, the department may be charged 25% of the estimated cost.
We reserve the right to cancel an event due to reasons such as incomplete paperwork, misrepresentation of an event or failure to abide by Recreation/NIU policies.
