Options for Getting and Staying Fit
The Simon Recreation Center has closed indefinitely as of March 17, 2020.
This careful decision has been made with the health of the SLU community in mind and as a precautionary measure intended to reduce the potential for the spread of the virus. We will continue to monitor and will communicate plans for resuming operations as decisions for doing so are made.
While we’re not planning to replace all of our in-person programs and services, we want to continue to encourage the well-being of our community, especially during this stressful time. To accomplish this we will be providing online resources that promote health and encourage movement in the "Live Well Virtual Resources" tab here on our page.
We love our SLU community. Thank you for your patience and support. We’re grateful for each of you and are looking forward to having everyone back on campus.
Please follow our social media accounts (@SLUrecandwellness) for the latest updates.
