Due to construction in the HHS/Arena, activities for Campus Recreation will be impacted as follows:

UPDATE: The gym/basketball courts/running area is set to close on Friday, Dec. 15, 2017.

The gym will reopen in either August 2018 or March 2019. (It will cost the University additional funds to get this work done more quickly, and that decision has not been finalized).

UPDATE: The last day to play racquetball is Dec. 15, 2017.

We wanted to give all of our members a heads-up as soon as we were made aware of these plans, so our members would have more than a year to make their own plans for future racquetball play.
