Basketball Courts

Slapping the backboards, dunking and hanging on the rims or nets are strictly prohibited because of the risk of injury and potential damage to the equipment. Recreation Center approved programming has priority usage. Only on-duty staff has the authority to take down or setup volleyball/badminton nets/indoor soccer goals. Participants should contact the front desk to request this service. No gum is allowed. Spitting is strictly prohibited. Court “3” is designated for half court play and shoot around. However, Sunday – Friday when courts "1" and "2" are being used for recreational programming during the hours of 6pm- 9pm, priority goes to full court play on court “3.” At all other times, no full court can be played on court “3.” Full court basketball games will abide by the following rules: Games are to 16 or to 12 if teams are waiting to play. Winners stay on the court; losers will rotate out. Please demonstrate fair and courteous behavior when courts are full and teams are waiting. No hockey sticks of any kind are permitted. Any players who engage in fighting or profanity will be immediately escorted off the premises. Resistance or repeated occurrences may result in closing of the basketball court area or suspension of Recreation Center privileges.


The Student Recreation Center is a unique facility on our campus. The Center provides numerous opportunities for interaction between the diverse populations that comprise the University community. In this regard it provides the ideal climate for learning to respect the dignity and worth of each individual. Please join the staff in promoting an environment that demonstrates these qualities. The staff is trained to treat all users with respect. We in turn request that we be treated with respect. It is possible to register a difference of opinion or complaint in a civil manner. The use of abusive or profane language will not be tolerated. Sexual harassment of patrons or employees will be resolved through the use of all available legal channels.

Facility Maintenance

Please help keep the facility neat and appealing to all users by properly disposing of litter. Recycling bins are available in the main lobby area. Make every attempt to report spills or unclean areas to the staff promptly.
