The Fitness Center, which reopened in October in accordance with state guidelines, closed for the winter break and will open again Feb. 1, at the start of the spring term. Learn more about using the Fitness Center facility.


The Gitenstein Library will continue to be available to all students, whether residing on or off campus. All users must show a green pass within the Roar app and scan appropriate QR codes to enter; face coverings must be worn at all times. All five floors of the library will be open, but occupancy will be restricted to 25 percent of building capacity. View library hours.

As of March 12, in response to student requests for more places to study in the evening, the library will open the Extended Study Area (the first-floor area of the library adjacent to the Alumni Grove) and Labs 2 and 5 on the lower level Sunday–Thursday 810 p.m. Extended hours will go into effect in coming weeks as we procure student workers.

Ask a Librarian (reference) services will continue to be provided remotely, and course reserves will be limited to online materials. Students participating in remote classes in the library must bring their own headsets. No food or drinks may be consumed inside the building, with the exception of water bottles with straws.
