Frequently Asked Questions

Student Recreation Center

What is the dress code?

​You must wear a shirt at all times inside the facility​ and must wear attire that covers your abdomen, nipples and gluteal fold. You must also wear athletic shoes that are closed-toe, closed heel and have non-marking rubber soles in specified activity areas. Alternative athletic shoes (e.g.,Vibram five finger shoes) are permitted.

Staff have the authority to make judgment calls for anything they deem inappropriate. Failure to abide by staff directions could lead to loss of privileges.

How do I secure my belongings in the locker room?

There are two options for securing your belongings:

  • Bring your own lock. There are 70 day-use lockers in each locker room of the Student Recreation Center. These lockers are first come, first served. Locks left on these day-use lockers overnight will be cut.
  • Rent a locker. Lockers with locks are available to rent for $4 per month. To rent a locker, visit the front desk.

How do I make a request to use space for a special event?
