As part of continuous plans to offer the best facilities and services through Campus Recreation, the flooring in the MAC Gym and MAC Suite will be refinished. Both spaces will close on Monday, May 21st with plans to reopen on Tuesday, June 5th. Please monitor our social media outlets and website for additional updates. Badminton drop-in activities will be offered in the 4-Court Gym during this closure; soccer is available at the Outdoor Field Complex on South Campus upon request, when no other activities are scheduled. Please check the calendar on our website for availability for both drop-in activities. As with all maintenance/repair projects, it is possible this project could last longer than expected or could be completed sooner than expected. While the fumes from the products used during this project are not dangerous to those in the facility, you may notice an odor in the area.
UIC Campus Recreation is a department within Campus Auxiliary Services (CAS) and is partially funded by student fees. CAS is a unit within Student Affairs.
