NKNU is remarkable for the quantity, range, and quality of its recreational offerings. There are currently more than 70 intramural student organizations, each with a faculty member as a consultant. The eight-floor multi-purpose Activity Center is both a place for various recreational activities and an area for clubs to gather. In addition to the Activity Center, there are other buildings that offer miscellaneous services, such as salons, cafeterias, and the bookstore.

In the university's provided dormitories, students can enjoy an active and carefree environment. Meal services coordinated by a food committee are provided on campus. This is to ensure that students receive a diet that is both healthy and diverse.

Also on each campus are medicare centers where the contracted physicians, dentists, and psychiatrists are available to provide medical services to faculty, staff and students.
