Welcome Back!!

The CSU Rec Center is FULLY reopened and we couldn’t be more excited!! We are so grateful and appreciative of your patience and support as we have navigated both the challenges of our closure and the new opportunities found in all of our virtual offerings.

PLEASE NOTE: With the rising number of COVID infections recently, Cleveland State University has just announced a new mask mandate. After consulting with public health officials and our campus community on recent trends, CSU believes additional safety protocols are necessary to limit the spread of COVID-19 and stay on a path to have a collectively successful fall semester.

Effective Monday, August 9, properly worn masks will be required at all times inside CSU facilities – including the Rec Center – for all members, students, faculty, staff, and visitors, regardless of vaccination status (exceptions being water activities and classes in the pool, as well as medical and religious reasons). Additionally, unvaccinated individuals are also expected to wear masks outdoors when physical distancing is not possible.
