Cost of Attendance - Through NCAA legislation, institutions can now include funds towards covering the cost of attendance gap for student-athletes on an athletic scholarship. The Cost of Attendance gap is provided to cover a student-athlete’s additional reasonable expenses related to attending college, such as transportation, technology, clothing, laundry, and personal items. NIU Athletics is committed to funding Cost of Attendance for all student-athletes, providing a student-athlete experience that is second to none.

Locker Room Amenities - Improvements to the locker room, such as chairs for each player to use, increased locker space and other enhancements, will provide an adequate atmosphere for the team to prepare for competition.
International Recruiting Trips - Our staff is committed to seeking out the best and brightest student-athletes both nationally and internationally. As NIU becomes not only a national but international brand, our staff will continue to travel around the country and world to recruit student-athletes who fit the NIU culture.
Addition of Fourth Indoor Court at Chick Evans Fieldhouse - A fourth indoor court will allow both the men’s and women’s teams to host matches on campus rather than having to travel 45 minutes, one way, to compete in Rockford. This will allow our student-athletes to efficiently attend classes, study groups, and other activities by limiting their travel time to and from matches.
