Facility Reservations

Did you know you can reserve NIU Recreation facilities?

It's easy to reserve space in our facilities. Simply book a time in MyRec or submit a request. If you have any questions about reservations, contact Matt Gonzalez at mgonzalez12@niu.edu or 815-753-9425.

Book in MyRec

Bookings in MyRec are intended for individual or small-group activities that do not have extensive equipment or set-up/take-down needs.

Visit MyRec to reserve space in the Recreation Center:

  • Fitness studio A or B
  • Multipurpose court 4, volleyball/pickleball
  • Multipurpose court 5, volleyball
  • Multipurpose court 6, tennis
  • Multipurpose court 7, basketball or open court space
  • Multipurpose court 8, badminton (three net options)
  • Racquetball court 8 or 9

You can also reserve a lap-swim time in the Anderson Hall pool or a tennis court at the Nelson Tennis Center at Chick Evans Field House in MyRec.

Submit a Request

If you want to reserve any of the spaces above and have extensive equipment or set-up/take-down needs, you must submit a request. You must also submit a request to reserve space at the Outdoor Recreation Sports Complex or the outdoor basketball courts.

You must submit your request at least three weeks in advance. You may need to give more notice for large events.

Inquiring about availability or submitting a request does not guarantee a reservation. Our staff will contact you to sign a contract if space is available.

Registered Student Groups

After you have space verified, submit your event request in Huskie Hub and have your president, treasurer and faculty/staff advisor approve the event at least two weeks in advance.

Read reservation guidelines for student groups.
