Where can I park for the Rec Center?

The two parking spaces closest to the door are for temporary parking, not for use for the duration of your workout. The spaces closest to building with the exception of the first two are available for usage during your workout with a valid campus parking permit. On the far side of the parking lot, the first four spaces are reserved for the Lyles Center for Entrepreneurship and are not to be used for Rec Center usage. The rest of those spaces are meters, enforced 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Overflow parking should go to Lot V, which is a green lot.

Simply call 278-0771 and inform the attendant that you would like to make a reservation. They will inform you which timeslots are open. Reservations are for one hour time slots. Back to back reservations are prohibited. No two people in the same party can reserve consecutive timeslots.


Faculty and Staff: Can my spouse use the Rec Center with me?

Because our facility is primarily for students, the Rec Center is not available to spouses of faculty and staff members at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this policy may cause.

I am Fresno State alumni.  Can I join the Student Recreation Center? 

Again, due to space limitations and the primary mission of the facility, we are not able to accomodate the sizeable alumni population in Fresno at this time.


What if I hurt myself in the facility?

Please inform a floor or front desk attendant immediately. If you are bleeding, please stay where you are and send someone near you to inform an attendant. If you have fallen and there is a risk of any neck or spine injury, please stay where you are and DO NOT LET ANYONE MOVE YOU until you have been cleared by Rec Center staff.
