Due to significant leaking in the Rec Center Women's Locker Room showers, we will have to close this part of the locker room in order to conduct repairs.


When will the women's locker room shower area be closed?
The Rec Center Women's Locker Room showers will be closed from from Sunday, March 2 through Monday, March 11, 2014.


What does the closure of the Women's Locker Room include?
Only the showers will be closed in the women's locker room. The restrooms, sinks, and lockers will continue to be available and accessible. However, you will be able to hear construction noise as contractors will construct a barrier between the showers area and the rest of the locker room. They will enter the work zone from the pool entrance.  


Why will the women's locker room showers be closed?
This is follow-up work to the emergency closure that happened a little over a week ago. The showers are leaking into the UPS Store below. It is significant, averaging 2 cups a day and a much as 4 cups a day.


What types of repairs will you be doing?

The entire shower floor, and portions of the wall, will be removed so the waterproofing can be rebuilt.


Are you going to issue membership refunds? 
No. There is no equitable way to refund students and affiliate memberships. However, we are providing alternatives for those needing to use the shower facilities outlined below. Additionally, we will be offering a token of our appreciation for those impacted during the closure


Where can women shower during the closure?

Women will be able to use the Universal Changing Rooms that are located near the pool area. We ask that women spend as little time as necessary in these rooms and return to the locker rooms to finish getting ready, unless there is a need of the accommodations that the room provides to a person with a disability. 

We ask men, unless needing a similar accommodation, refrain from using the Universal Changing Rooms altogether.


Who can I contact if I have further questions?
Should you have additional questions or concerns, please contact Todd Bauch, Associate Director of Operations at, Alex Accetta, Director of Campus Rec at or Ashley Campbell, Member Services Coordinator, at


We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience and understanding as we work hard to make these repairs.
