ARC Hours

ARC will be closed through August 1 with a tentative reopening date of Aug 3 pending guidance from the University. Due to the SRU Emergency Management and CDC guidelines, Campus Recreation staff will be working to re-design the footprint/floorplan of the ARC to accommodate social distancing guidelines and to ensure the overall health and safety of the university community. Current ARC memberships are “frozen” and members will be updated with re-opening protocols, as information becomes available
