Health Promotion Temporarily Relocated to Levine Hall

We are committed to providing support for the health and wellness of faculty and staff while operations are suspended in Varsity Gym. 

University Recreation has been very supportive of the Department of Health Promotion to Faculty and Staff with our quest to temporarily relocate some of our exercise classes and Personal Training. It is a very kind offer to help us stay on campus to meet the needs of those who utilize our services.

We would like to encourage those of you who would like to participate in the classes we plan to offer at The Quinn and Mt.Mitchell as well as Personal Training to obtain the membership if you have not already done so. Please follow this link to learn more


Health Promotion for Faculty Staff Temporarily Relocated to Levine Hall

Five months after Health Promotion for Faculty and Staff’s (HPFS) displacement due to water damage, plans for repairing Varsity Gym are in progress. The Board of Governors financially approved repairs to Varsity Gym in December that would allow us to move back in and resume our full services to faculty and staff.  The state board reviewed mitigation plans, requested a few clarifications regarding the steps of repair, and addressed minor changes to the planned procedure. 

Health Promotion for Faculty and staff is currently choosing flooring and paint, and bids for the project are forthcoming.  Excluding any delays with restoration, we hope to be back in operation by fall 2019.

We thank you for your support of HPFS and your patience through this process.

We encourage everyone to take advantage of the Health Promotion Lab in Levine Hall.  Operation hours are Monday-Thursday, 7:30 am - 6 pm and Friday, 7:30 am - 3 pm.  Health Promotion Lab, Levine Hall offers strength training and cardiovascular exercise opportunities.  Additionally, showers and locker rooms are available for use.
We will continue updating you as we learn more of our situation.
