Weekends: 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sat.-Sun.
To minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19, the staff has protocols in place that are in accordance with campus policies regarding social distancing, face masks and disinfection.
The protocols are simple and easy-to-follow:

  • Face masks are to be worn at all times
  • The facility will be disinfected midday on weekdays, and between closing and reopening each day (seven days a week)
  • Users are asked to clean the machines before and after use
  • Social distancing will be accomplished through protocols that assure at least 10 feet of distance between people who are working out

Reservations are not currently required, but traffic will be evaluated to see if a sign-up system will be necessary during peak hours.
