Members of the faculty and staff may pay a yearly fee to join the Faculty–Staff Fitness Program. In return, they receive a locker, towel service, and access to most of the University’s athletic facilities at noon every day of the work week. Faculty and staff groups compete in most activities most days (e.g., basketball, volleyball, aerobics, tennis, racquetball, squash). Faculty members sign up for this program at the towel cage in the basement of New Gym.
Faculty members can buy a membership to the Student Recreation Center at a reduced rate. The Student Recreation Center contains a 5-lane lap pool; a leisure pool; a 53-person spa with a cascading waterfall; an elevated 1/8-mile track; a sport court for indoor soccer and roller hockey; 6 courts for volleyball, basketball, and badminton; 4 racquetball/squash courts; 3 multipurpose rooms; a 17,000 square-foot free weight and cardio-fitness training area; a food bar; indoor lounges with sitting areas, games, and fireplace; and an outdoor sundeck.
