In order to minimize the spread of bacteria and help keep our patrons healthy and active, shirts and shoes are required throughout the facility. Shirts must cover, at a minimum, your sides/torso and midriff. Sports bras must be covered by a shirt.
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. Hair tends to absorb a lot of water and becomes very heavy and might make moving through the water more difficult.
For specific appropriate and inappropriate clothing choices please visit the Patron Attire Policy.
