Reopening FAQ's

Now Open!

Hello Campus Community and SRC members,

We are thrilled to reopen our doors to you! Since the closure of our facility due to Covid-19 we have been working to develop and implement a plan that allows each of you the opportunity to work out within an environment that is as safe as possible.  We have modified some of our services, equipment, and facility areas in order to best serve that purpose.  These adaptations were developed using recommendations and mandates from the ACHA, the CDC, EKU officials, and the KY Governor’s Healthy at Work Requirements for Fitness Centers and Aquatic Centers. As new information becomes available, the Student Recreation Center will continue to make the necessary changes.

The Student Recreation Center has reopened in a limited capacity.

We expect that this news will generate questions and curiosity regarding policy, procedure, memberships, services, and more. Please reference the FAQ's below for all of the up-to-date details. Please reach out to us here if you have any questions.
