Student Recreation Center (The Rec)

CLOSED: Wednesday, 6 a.m. to noon

On Wednesday, Oct. 26, the Student Rec Center will be closed throughout the morning for a scheduled replacement of one of our main air handler rooftop units over the weight room. During the removal of the old unit and the replacement with the new unit, for safely purposes, we cannot allow anyone in the areas near the weight room. A crane will remove the old unit and lower in the new unit.

The building will be closed all morning and we will reopen at NOON on Wednesday. Please understand that there are many factors involved in this scenario, so last minute notices may be given, if anything causes a change to this schedule. Several metered parking spaces in front of the rec center will also be unavailable during this time frame.
