Chrouser Sports Complex Hours

Announcement Regarding Chrouser Sports Complex Use for Faculty, Staff, and Students

Dear Campus Community,

The Chrouser Sports Complex will partially re-open on Monday, August 3rd.

From August 3 to August 16, we will only partially reopen the building and operate with shortened hours. Current students and employees will have access to the weight room, indoor track and cardio equipment, which has been relocated into the hallways for social distancing. Anyone entering the building and working out must wear masks the entire time. To limit the total number of people on campus in light of COVID-19, employees’ spouses and dependents, retirees, community members and outside groups will not be permitted use of the building. Building access is limited to current employees and current students.

Academic Year Hours

On Monday, August 17th we anticipate returning to more robust hours for the academic year to accommodate returning students. At that time, we also hope to open other areas of the building including recreation gyms and the pool. The hot tub as well as the climbing wall will remain closed. Pool hours will be updated and communicated in August. Equipment will be available for check-out individual use from the front desk. The Lederhouse Natatorium will open August 17th with hours coming soon.

Sign Up Requirement and Facility Regulations

Like all areas of campus, the Chrouser Sports Complex is faced with capacity challenges. We desire to honor your time and be as efficient as possible in serving our students and employees. To assist in managing space restrictions, you will need to sign up to have access to the work out space. We grieve the loss of spontaneity and flexibility in this new system. More information on how to sign up will be here on the Chrouser website in the near future. Please remember that masks will be required at all times inside the complex.

For questions, please email us or call the Chrouser Front Desk at (630) 752-5146.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work toward a COVID-Safe, Thunder-Strong opening. We appreciate all the help and support we have received along the way and look forward to seeing you soon!

Go Thunder!
The Chrouser Sports Complex Team
