Facility Satisfaction Survey

Thank you for taking the time to help Campus Recreation collect necessary feedback to help determine the needs of our members and users.

This survey is here for you to tell us about your experiences utilizing Campus Recreation facilities. This survey can take as little as 30 seconds if you haven’t used our facilities or longer depending on how much time you spend with us.

Your feedback is essential to shape future planning and decisions and create stronger relations.

Take the survey.

Building Signage Updates

Campus Recreation has upgraded our signage to reflect the revised University branding guidelines. Please take the opportunity to review the policies including wording changes around technology and use of various devices such as cell phones in our facilities.

Policy Change: Proper Swimwear Attire

Effective July 1, 2018.
Campus Recreation elaborated the policy on swimwear attire due to the replacement of the pool filtration system in the summer of 2018. Apparel must be designed for swimming; street clothes are prohibited in the pools and hot tub but required throughout the facilities.

Please review the Proper Swimwear Attire policy.
