Important Fitness Center Information

Only weeks remain before the opening of the new Hadlock Student Center (HSC)! Assuming everything continues on schedule, the fitness center portion of the facility will be open with limited hours (tentatively 4 to 9 p.m.) beginning Monday, Aug. 27, so that student staff can be adequately trained on the new equipment and protocols (anticipated grand opening and full hours will begin Monday, Sept. 3). This is subject to change if there are unexpected delays in construction.

If you use the current fitness center in Wheeler, you’ll notice that much of the older equipment has been moved out. Sometime in August, the large portion of the space will be remodeled for athletics’ use in light of the addition of women and men’s swimming and the continued growth in the number of student-athletes (currently 20 percent of our undergraduate student population). The smaller portion of the current facility (the free weight area) will be remodeled into a classroom during the fall semester.

Please note that because of remodeling and construction of new space, there will likely be a two- to three-week time frame in August when there will be no fitness center available for general campus use. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience for those who are regularly using this space and trust that the new space in the Hadlock Student Center will make it worth the wait!
