NOTE: The Fitness Center is only open to current East Hall and North Hall residents, and current NMC faculty, staff and students with a paid membership.

COMMUNITY MEMBERS: We value that you have enjoyed the Fitness Center in past years. The facility is now located in a student residence hall and not open to the public for security reasons.
