Campus gyms and other recreational spaces have reopened with modified hours. All intramural, club sports and group recreational and fitness activities involving 10 participants or fewer are allowed outdoors pending space availability, and student organizations are permitted to host in-person activities, programs, and meetings in groups of 10 or fewer. Many events will continue to be held virtually.

Student Organizations

All intramural, club sports and group recreational and fitness activities involving 10 participants or fewer are allowed outdoors pending space availability. Check the Club Sports website for details on policy and guidelines. All participants in any activity must maintain six feet of distance and wear a face covering at all times.

Student organizations are permitted to host in-person activities, programs, and meetings in groups of 10 or fewer. Tabling is not allowed at this time. All in-person gatherings must be registered in CampusGroups, attendance must be tracked, and food is not permitted. Student organizations must reserve space through the university events scheduling system. The Campus Events Office will review requests to confirm your program meets all campus health and safety standards.

Athletics

Student-athletes and coaching staff may conduct up to two hours per day of conditioning and sport-specific activity, as well as in-person team meetings not to exceed 10 students. Public access to some of our outdoor athletics facilities may be limited as a result of this change.
