Welcome to Campus Recreation

Welcome Back

We are thrilled to announce that we are able to open the IM Building on Friday, September 25th for our students. Due to our efforts for de-densification and capacity limits we will open for students only at this time. Each day will be divided into reservable workout time slots – with a capacity for about 200 students in each slot. Our new Reservation System is key in helping you get your workout in and keep our facilities as safe as possible. 

We now have a Reservation System for all open facility areas – here are some highlights: 
• To register for a workout session simply connect to the Campus Recreation Web Portal and click on the orange reserve your workout button – each area and the equipment available will be listed out to help guide you 
• Follow these simple instructions on Video or via PDF link to learn more about how to register and cancel your session  
• Registration for activity areas will adhere to strict capacity limitations and indoor facilities will be cleared at the end of each activity session 

Find everything you need about how to manage the IM Building reservations and different areas in this short informative video about our opening.  

As with the rest of campus, students working out are required to wear a mask for the duration of their time in the facility. Additionally, equipment has been spaced out to promote plenty distancing between you and others while working out. Do your part by maintaining at least 6 ft. of distance between you and others in walkways and common areas of the IM Building.  

We are all in this together – please help us stay open by following these Shared Responsibilities 

• Wear your mask  
• Stay socially distanced  
• Clean your equipment before & after use  
• Wash your hands frequently  
• Bring your towel and water bottle  

We are so excited to see you – Welcome Back
