Outdoor Facilities

Group Fitness

We proudly offer free group fitness classes as part of your tuition at NHTI! Suggestions for different types of classes are always welcome.

Pickle Ball is a quick, fast-paced paddle sport for all ages. It can be played as singles or doubles and is easy for beginners to learn. It combines elements of tennis, badminton, and ping-pong.

Indoor Soccer

We host indoor soccer in our gymnasium all year long and are willing to facilitate an organized league at the local Fieldhouse Sports Facility. The Wellness Department helps to support this organizationally and financially.


Dodgeball is a fun and energetic activity, and we encourage both individual games and multi-game tournaments! NHTI students from various clubs, organizations, and residence halls have created friendly, fun competition within our community.

The Caccia Student Center provides a comfortable, student-friendly space to connect with each other, do homework, play ping-pong, billiards, or board games, and just hang out and watch TV.
