Campus Recreation


Our top priority is the health and safety of our patrons and our staff. This includes wearing a mask in our facility at all times to protect yourself and others while working out. Since people can spread the virus before symptoms start, or even if people never have symptoms, wearing a face covering protects you and others around you. The Youngstown Mayor and Board of Health issued an order for the use of masks by everyone in public, in the city of Youngstown until further notice. We are currently deep cleaning and disinfecting our facility regularly, we added sanitizing stations and developed new protocols and procedures to create the safest environment possible.  


We are following all University and State guidelines for cleaning, program offerings and social distancing protocols for our patrons and guests. Be well and stay safe.
