Campus Living

Our Campus & Community

ThunderWe foster a vibrant, tight-knit community of students and professionals with an open exchange of ideas and a variety of academic, athletic, and service-oriented activities.

Students can find niche communities on campus ranging from esports,  to Student Government, Rugby, and more! There is something for everyone here and that is part of what makes our campus feel so alive.

The Fels Student Center

The heart of Nichols’ campus life is the Fels Student Center. Students come here for freshly made food and gourmet coffee. Student clubs and organizations meet here, and the trading room offers dual-monitor work stations for various classes and student projects. On any given evening or weekend, students might be entertained by singers, comics, guest speakers, or a movie screening.

Athletics Facilities

Athletic Center Our athletics center offers a basketball gym, squash and racquetball courts, a weight room, a fitness room, four locker rooms, and an indoor climbing wall. Elsewhere on our campus, we’ve got volleyball courts (outdoor and indoor), tennis courts, outdoor basketball courts, soccer fields, softball fields, and the Chalmers Field House, with indoor basketball courts, an aerobic room and another weight room. If you’re looking for an excuse not to work out, you won’t find it here.

We play all of our home football, field hockey and lacrosse games on the Michael J. Vendetti Multi-Purpose Field. Men’s and women’s soccer teams also play some of their home contests here. The field includes an eight-lane rubberized quarter-mile track surrounding a turf field surface and Musco lighting. It’s a beautiful place to cheer on the Bison. Learn more about athletics here.
