Sport, Recreation and Fitness Center (SuRF)

The SuRF Center is open!

Campus Recreation and Wellness requires all patrons to wear a face covering while inside the facility except when actively using a cardio machine.

Our current hours are as follows: 

  • Monday - Thursday | *9:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m.
  • Friday | *9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday - Sunday | 11 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.

*An “Early Hour” from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. will be established Monday through Friday for those patrons who are considered high-risk individuals. According to the CDC, this includes people aged 65 years and older as well as people of all ages with underlying medical conditions, including the immunocompromised.

We recognize how important it will be to follow current health guidelines from the CDC and the state health department, so we intend to implement some new practices that will ensure a healthy and safe environment for everyone. With this in mind, our department has developed a thorough reopening plan in line with the governor’s “Healthy at Work” fitness center requirements. You will see new cleaning routines, signage to reinforce physical distancing policies, limited activities, closed spaces, and more. Below are the links to some guides we have put together on these new policies so you can know ahead of time what to expect when you visit the newly reopened SuRF Center.

Guidelines are subject to change based on new information or additional guidance from government and health officials as well as university administration.
