    Dress policy at the Rec Center

    spacer image
    spacer image
    spacer image
    Staff of the Student Recreation & Wellness Center want to remind members that the dress policy for the fitness floor & strength area equipment in the SRWC and ONAT changed May 19th. Members are required to wear at minimum a sleeved t-shirt that covers the back and stomach. Tank tops, sleeveless shirts, sport bras (only), and cut-off shirts are not permitted. The policy was implemented for the health and well-being of members by greatly reducing the risk of skin-to-equipment disease transmission. Other dress policies for those areas include athletic pants or shorts, and athletic shoes.

    For more information about the new policy and a visual representation, visit our website at http://www.zipsrec.uakron.edu.
