Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Annual May Closures

To continue providing an extraordinary experience for its members, Student Life’s Department of Recreational Sports will have temporary rolling closures of its facilities to perform deep cleaning and maintenance in May.

The weeks following May graduation are the best time for the closures, as attendance is historically low and the majority of our patrons are not impacted. All other facilities will be available when one is closed.

A host of projects will take place at each facility during the closure, from high dusting to floor and wood floor screenings. This year we will also migrate to a new member management system for controlling access into the facilities, program registration and point of sale. All member access data will be transferred and no action needs to be taken by members to access the facilities once the switch occurs on May 8.


The schedule of closures is as follows:

Recreation and Physical Activity Center and Aquatic Center: May 8-14

Adventure Recreation Center and Outdoor Adventure Center: May 15-21

Jesse Owens South and North Recreation Center: May 22-29


Please note that Jesse Owen North and Jesse Owens West Tennis Center will be closed beginning on May 7. Jesse Owens North will reopen on August 20, 2017 and Jesse Owens West Tennis Center will reopen on October 16, 2017. The RPAC Kid Zone will also close on May 3 and reopen in the fall.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support of Rec Sports facilities.
