CRP&P Heading

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.

There are three major rules that everybody will need to follow.

  1. PSU ID CARD! Your PSU ID CARD IS YOUR ONLY MEANS OF ACCESS INTO THE FACILITY! Do not forget your card or you will not be allowed in. This is the only way we can control access and collect demographics needed for programming and risk management.
  2. Proper Attire! If you plan on using our cardio, strength, resistance circuit or free weights,  then you will need to have a sleeved shirt that covers the abdomen, arm to at least the mid-bicep and armpit. To participate in all other areas appropriate attire and shoes will be required.
  3. NO FOOD OR DRINK allowed in the recreation area of the facility.  Water is allowed and must be in a clear container or purchased from the vending machine located inside the cardio.

Use of proper athletic shoes and modest attire while using Campus Recreation facilities is required. 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 Items
Store 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.

Bicycles & Other Wheeled Vehicles
Campus Recreation supports the use of alternative transportation; however, wheeled vehicles (e.g., bicycles, skates, skateboards, and scooters) are prohibited in the SRC and on the exterior plaza. Bicycles may be parked in the provided racks on the west side of the plaza at the owner's risk. Bicycles and scooters benches, light poles, trees, or signs risk being removed.
