Niles residents may purchase a membership to the NSC for $20 a year per person, or $30 a year for two residing at the same address. Non-residents may purchase a membership to the NSC for $35 a year per person, or $45 a year for two residing at the same address. Members receive the bi-monthly program guide and priority registration with member pricing. Your membership card must be scanned in at the Membership Services Desk to allow access to the Center including the card room, billiards room, main lobby with large screen TV and Free WiFi, library for books & movies, and multi-media center.
So that we may contact you in the event of a cancellation, all programs, both FREE and paid, require registration. Payment is due at the time of registration (All credit card payments must be made in person.) Members can register by mail or in person at the Senior Center beginning the second Tuesday of the mailing month. Non-member registration begins the third Tuesday of the mailing month. Early registration is encouraged as programs with insufficient registration may be cancelled. A wait list is started when a program reaches its maximum capacity. In the event of a cancellation, calls will be made to individuals on the wait list in numerical order.
Programs cancelled by the NSC due to low enrollment, weather, or other scheduling conflicts, will be fully refunded. If a registrant cancels, refunds are given only if the Center can resell the ticket. Refunds will be credited to the individual account; checks are issued only upon request.
Trip Cancellation Policy
Fees for day trips are non-refundable within 10 working days of the trip if a replacement cannot be found. Please call and speak with a staff person and let them know you cannot attend the trip. We will do our best to find a replacement for you on the trip. If we are successful, you will be given a credit on your account or issued a refund check.
Code of Conduct
In order to provide a welcoming, safe, and supportive environment for our members and guests, Niles Senior Center has developed a Code of Conduct. Copies are available at the front desk.
The Niles Senior Center will have a delayed opening on the days that Culver School is closed because of inclement weather or when travel is hazardous. Programs will be cancelled on a case by case basis; registrants will be notified.
Vehicles must be parked in a designated space. If a parked vehicle is taking up more than one space, it is not an acceptable excuse for another operator to do the same. Drivers should be aware that spaces in prime locations tend to fill up quickly. Depending on your time of arrival, the outer lots may be the best choice for parking. Should the staff witness or be notified of any issues in the Senior Center lot, including locked cars with engines running, parking illegally in or next to a handicapped spot, fender benders, and/or observed difficulty with driving, the police will be called to respond.
