RSOP Facilities

RSOP utilizes many different facilities that promote recreation, fitness, and exploration of the outdoors. RSOP operates out of various facilities within the Sports and Health Center (SpHC) as well as external locations on and off campus. Facility users must carry the appropriate pass at all times. Hours are subject to change by program need.

The Recreation Center will be closed for the semester beginning 10pm, Friday, November 20.

As many of you are aware, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to present challenges within the state of Minnesota and across our nation. Last evening, the Governor of Minnesota ordered a shutdown of most of the services provided by RSOP. This shutdown will begin at 10pm Friday, November 20 and go until we tentatively reopen again on Monday, January 4 (check out the Google Calendar below for details on our January hours).
