  • I see no specified open recreation hours besides in the Fieldhouse, are there hours for open recreation in the U. Recreation and Wellness Center?
  • All hours outside of the scheduled programming and events are devoted to open recreation. The Fieldhouse has limited open hours therefore the reason for the specific listed times for open recreation.
  • How can I reserve time for any of the Recreational Sports facilities?
