policies & facilities Heading link
In addition to providing inclusive facilities, Campus Recreation understands the importance of policies and programs that are welcoming to all participants.
Campus Recreation has a number of policies in place to ensure that all our visitors and participants experience a safe, secure, and welcoming environment. To read more about these policies, please click here.
We offer a variety of training opportunities to our staff to further our commitment to providing welcoming customer service and programs.
What does this mean in practice?
Student and professional staff at Campus Recreation receive training on topics such as Inclusivity and Safe Zone Workshops.
We make inclusivity a priority, yet there may be times when someone (either on our own staff or a Campus Recreation user) may not be fully educated or aware of our policies. We make every effort to assure that you are always welcome within our building and at our programs, but if you have a concern, please let any of the staff on duty know, or you can contact Member Services at (312) 413-5162.
Campus Recreation is committed to providing safe, welcoming spaces for all participants. Gender inclusive restrooms, gender inclusive changing rooms, ADA access, and multiple workout areas designed to accommodate various skill, ability, and individual comfort levels. As part of our Inclusive Recreation program, we want to make sure we create spaces and environments where people are able to use our facilities without barriers.
