Expanded Programs and Facility Reservations for Students

Campus Recreation continues to expand spaces, reservation options and programs for students. Some highlights include the transition of many of our virtual fitness classes to in person options at the IM Building, the opening of our Bouldering Wall and expanded workout areas in IM including the opening of the Track.   

 As spring continues look for more options outside. As the weather warms, join our Intramural leagues to play cornhole, bocce or foosball soccer, attend an Outdoor Skills clinic and watch for some fun fitness classes back outside at the tennis courts as we did in the fall. We’re doing all we can to expand in a safe and effective manner to accommodate as many of our student living on campus and in the surrounding areas.   

The following information will help you transition back to Campus Recreation facilities once you're back on campus and ready to join us.  

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 for 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
