Campus Recreation values an inclusive environment, as well as your health and wellbeing. Exposed skin can be at risk to disease exposure, therefore we encourage participants to clean fitness equipment before and after use. The following attire is required at all times:
- A top and bottom must be worn at all times (exceptions are the locker room areas).
- Tops and bottoms that have buttons or rivets on them are not allowed due to the potential damage to the equipment and others that they may cause.
Footwear requirements: Non-marking shoes are required on all wood floors (i.e. basketball and racquetball courts, the group exercise studio, and multi-purpose rooms). Sandals, clogs, and other open shoes are not permitted in the cardiovascular and strength areas. Minimalist shoes (e.g., Vibram Five Finger shoes and other similar shoes) are now permitted to be worn throughout the Student Recreation Center. Patrons choosing to wear minimalist shoes while using the Student Recreation Center do so at their own risk. Campus Recreation staff reserves the right to determine if footwear is not appropriate for use.
Because of increased risk of injury, it is recommended that jewelry be removed prior to participating in any activities or before utilizing any equipment in the fitness areas. Please remember that jewelry is not permitted in any Intramural Sport contest. Jeans or other pants/shorts with rivets are not allowed on any equipment.
In the Aquatic Complex clean, appropriate, and proper swim attire is required. Acceptable attire includes a swim suit of some kind. Athletic shorts and sports bras are not considered swim attire. Swim caps are not required, but recommended if you have a lot of hair. Your hair tends to absorb a lot of water and becomes very heavy and might make moving through the water more difficult.
