New Athletics Facility Construction/Exam Update

Good afternoon,

In light of the construction happening outside of the CJ Sanders Fieldhouse, exams will be taking place in the Hangar rather than the main gym. 

To help provide alternative solutions and lessen the disruption during the closure we have arranged the following:

  1. We will be moving as much equipment as possible to the cardio room to help prevent as much disruption as possible
  2. Open gym time each afternoon and evening (please see facilities/hours for times)
  3. The mezzanine around the gymnasium will be available for walking
The Hangar will be closed from December 4th - December 18th inclusive.
We greatly appreciate your patience during this time.
