In order to provide an enjoyable experience for everyone, we ask that all patrons demonstrate respect for others by adhering to all policies and caring for the equipment and facility. Members and guests should familiarize themselves with the rules and regulations as posted within the Student Recreation Center (SRC) or posted on our web site. Verbal instructions from staff are for the safety and comfort of all members and guests and must be followed at all times.

Non-marking shoes are required on all wood floors (i.e. basketball courts and group exercise studio, and track). Sandals, clogs, and other open shoes are not permitted in the cardiovascular and strength areas. To promote a welcoming atmosphere, help protect our equipment and reduce the possibility of infection transmission, unaltered, sleeved T-shirts covering the torso, shoulders and armpit must be worn while using any strength or cardio equipment. Because of increased risk of injury, it is recommended that jewelry be removed prior to participating in any activities or before utilizing any equipment in the fitness areas. Please remember that jewelry is not permitted in any Intramural Sport contest. Campus Recreation and/or PSU are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Bags/Personal ItemsStore all items in a locker or cubby. Day lockers are available in the student/staff lock rooms (you need to supply your own lock) and cubbies are located throughout the facility. Unattended items will be collected and considered lost if they are not stored in a locker. Due to the lack of space in the cardio and free weight area bags are not allowed. Campus Recreation and/or PSU are not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Skates, skateboards, and scooters carried into the building must be stored in a locker or cubby. Campus Recreation and/or PSU are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
