Reopening Update

We are pleased to announce that the Campus Recreation Center is preparing to return to operations mid-August. Until further notice, the Fitness Center at CARE/Crawley will remain closed.

Due to the restrictions on gyms, as mandated by the state, UC Campus Recreation will have limited space available, and will only be available to campus faculty, staff and students at this time. Hours of operation will be adjusted to allow sufficient time for deep cleaning of the facility; please see our website for the most current hours of operation.

In order to best provide a safe environment, we will be operating on a reservation system. Individuals will be able to reserve time on the fitness floor or in the lap pool. Information on how to make a reservation will be available on the website prior to opening.

Please note the following changes to services and operations upon opening:

  • As per university requirements, a facial covering will be required at all times with the exception of while swimming.  If an individual has an approved exemption, a face shield must be worn at all times with the exception of while swimming.
  • Towel service, equipment checkout and access to lockers and water fountains will be suspended during this time.
  • The following areas will be closed: locker room showers, basketball courts, climbing wall, track, leisure pool, hot tub and racquetball courts.
  • Day passes will not be sold until further notice.
  • Group fitness will continue with a virtual format; no in-person classes will be held.
  • Facility rentals will not be allowed.
  • Spouse and legal dependent memberships will be suspended unless they are a current UC employee or student.

We ask that you please do your part to keep the facility safe by sanitizing your workout station before and after use. The recreation staff will do a thorough cleaning of the facility each night after closing, as well as clean equipment throughout the day.
