Due to Phase II construction, the HPER Center's last day of operation will be Wednesday, April 30th and will not reopen until approximately October 15, 2014, the expected completion date for phase II construction.
Closing and emptying the HPER is a large undertaking. 'Everything' must be out of the HPER prior to our May 1st closing.
Beginning Monday, April 28th movers will be in the HPER to dismantle and relocate all of our cardiovascular equipment (1st floor) and weight equipment (2nd floor). For this reason the 1st floor cardio room and 2nd floor weight room will be closed beginning Monday, April 28th. Also, the equipment will be moved through our east side front entrance.
Because of this, HPER hours for Monday, April 28th through Wednesday, April 30th will be:
Monday, April 28th - 4pm to 11pm
Tuesday, April 29th - 4pm to 11pm
Wednesday, April 30th - 4pm to 11pm
Thursday, May 1st - HPER CLOSED
*ONLY the track and basketball courts will be available for recreational use on these days.
