Student Recreation Center
The University of Texas at El Paso is taking measures to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and faculty during the COVID-19 outbreak. On Tuesday, March 24th, the City of El Paso issued a shelter-at-home ordinance to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. All COVID-19 updates can be found at www.utep.edu/coronavirus.
The Student Recreation Center is reopened September 1st, with modified hours of operation and safety measures protocols.
The Facility side of the Student Recreation Center, including the Cardio Theater, Selectorized Machines, Free Weights Area, Basketball Courts, Multi-Activity Courts (MAC) and Racquetball Courts will be open in the Fall by reservation only.

We will continue to operate all digital and online classes, as well as the equipment check out program until the end of the semester. All other areas will remain closed including Pool, Climbing Gym, university Field, Multipurpose Field, Locker Rooms, and Showers.
