The SIU Student Recreation Center will reopen July 15, 2020.

Welcome Back, We have missed YOU!

The safety of our students, patrons and team members is what is most important to us. The SIU Rec has always been dedicated to providing a healthy way of life to the Saluki community, and with a carefully planned and phased approach, we will begin to reopen. Each of us will play an important role in making the Rec a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

In accordance with SIU, Illinois, CDC, IDPH guidelines we are taking extra precautions to help our patrons and staff stay safe and healthy. This includes extensive cleaning protocols, enhanced procedures, and social distancing practices within our facility. Patrons will be asked to follow signs and floor decals located throughout the facility to ensure the safety of all. You will notice increased spacing between equipment and within workout areas to allow for appropriate social distancing.

As we navigate through the reopening of the Rec, there will be some new things to expect during each phase. We appreciate your help and understanding as we work through this time together. Below you will find guidelines to assist you and our staff to making the Rec a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

If you have a specific concern or you need help locating hand sanitizer stations, please see any Rec Center team member. You can also e-mail us with additional questions or concerns.

According to the CDC guidelines, older adults, 65 years and older, or who are at higher risk for severe illness should take additional safety precautions. It is not recommended these individuals work out in congregate settings during this phase.
