Cleveland State University Recreation Services will begin a rooftop renovation project on Monday, August 31. The project will last approximately four months and is scheduled to be completed on Wednesday, December 30. We want to alert all of our patrons to use caution when entering and exiting the Recreation Center Garage. During this time period the construction crews will be mobilizing and staging material in a fenced area leading down the ramp to the Recreation Center Garage. While the fenced area will not impact your access to any of the garages we ask everyone to proceed slowly up and down the ramp and to be courteous and cautious of the traffic flow patterns.
There will be a few dates from Monday, August 31 through Thursday, September 17 in which the MAC Gymnasium will be closed from 6am until 11am. These closures should be the only impacts to our patronage during the entire renovation project. Once the exact MAC Gym closure dates are determined we will pass this information along to you.

The Rec Center not only leads the way in fitness and recreation technology and programming, but also is active in being "green," as the Rec Center is LEED certified and continues a number of initiatives to be environmentally-friendly, including our recylcling program, water-refilling stations, low-flow capacity shower heads, peroxide-based cleaning chemicals, reflective glass for energy conservation, and the use of recycled materials throughout the facility. Reducing our carbon footprint helps create a better world, a better facility and ultimately, a better you!
