In light of Campus closure and as a precautionary measure regarding COVID-19, the Campus Recreation Center has suspended operations to help minimize health and safety risks to the campus community.  Staff will work diligently to respond as quickly as possible to questions regarding memberships, programs and services. We ask for your patience as response time may increase. Updates will be published to the UNC COVID-19 information page as the situation develops and our staff will reach out with additional updates as soon as we are able.
