Fitness and Recreation
The Recreation staff is working to implement state regulations and guidelines in our fitness centers on all three campuses to be able to open and serve the QU community in a safe manner. We will announce an official opening date in the fall.
Anyone who is exhibiting signs of illness should not enter the fitness centers. Wellness checks may be required upon entry to the Athletic and Recreation Center or fitness facility.
To ensure proper building capacity during peak times, a reservation to work out in the facility may be required through the Quinnipiac Reservation System on IMLeagues. All fitness classes, including virtual offerings, will require reservations using the same system.
When visiting the fitness centers or taking a fitness class, everyone must wear a face covering to enter the facility and at all times during their workout. There will be an increase in disinfecting products and hand sanitizer around the facility. Users are responsible for wiping down all cardio and strength equipment before and after use. Fitness Center staff will be increasing cleaning in the facility.
Locker rooms will not be available, but all restrooms will be open. Attendees should arrive dressed to work out and leave the facility to shower in their residence hall or off-campus property.
Participants should bring their own water bottle, sweat cloth/towel and equipment (e.g., yoga mat, basketball, weight belt) as needed for their workout. Equipment checkout will not be available. Options for equipment needed will be posted on the Campus Recreation MyQ page (login required).
Clubs and intramurals
Club Sport competitions are canceled for the Fall 2020 semester. The university is still evaluating the level of activity for teams during the semester and, at this time, there is no guarantee of tryouts or practice.
Intramural sports will be offered in a virtual setting this semester and will include activities such as esports, virtual races, step challenges and online trivia. A plan for on-ground intramurals is currently being finalized.
