Fitness and Recreation

We have made changes to the operations of our fitness centers and classes, and club and intramural sports in order to keep students and employees safe.

Fitness Centers

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).

Club Sports and Intramurals

The university plans to resume club sport practices and tryouts in the spring semester based on public health guidelines. Additionally, university, state and national governing body guidelines will determine if competitions will be possible, and the ability to continue practices will depend on the university remaining at green or yellow status and compliance with university and state guidelines.

Intramural sports will be offered virtually and on campus in the spring semester. Virtual activities will include eSports, bracket challenges, step challenges and trivia, while on-campus activities will include cornhole, pickleball and badminton. There may be additional opportunities for outdoor sports later in the semester if the university remains at a green or yellow status (see the COVID dashboard).

Masks will be worn at all times during club and intramural sports programming.

Updates and calendars will be posted on the Campus Recreation MyQ page (login required), and at instagram.com/quclubsportsinstagram.com/qu_fitness and instagram.com/quinnipiacintramurals
