UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
On March 16, 2020, the UW-River Falls Campus Recreation department was forced to close all Falcon Center facilities, suspended all memberships, and end all in-person student, faculty, staff, and community programs because of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
On Monday, August 24, 2020, UW-River Falls Campus Recreation was approved to reopen the UW-River Falls Falcon Center with some student, faculty, and staff programming in the first phase of a reopening plan based on very strict restrictions from the university, Pierce County, and the State of Wisconsin. Fortunately, many of the precautions that were implemented have been successful.
We are excited to announce the next phase of the reopening plan has been approved which allows UW-River Falls Campus Recreation to begin the process of reopening portions of our programs to the community. Phase 2 is not a complete reopening to the public; however, it does allow additional offerings and begins allowing community back inside the UW-River Falls Falcon Center.
Below is a list of the Phase 2 program offerings and links on where to find more information:
UW-River Falls Campus Recreation is still monitoring university, Pierce County, and the State of Wisconsin regulations regarding reopening more programs and facilities. Until then, all other Campus Recreation programs are only open to UWRF students, faculty, and staff. This includes open recreation in the fitness center, climbing wall, and evenings inside the field house.
Due to physical distancing guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we require all users to make a reservation through the Campus Rec app or online at recreation.uwrf.edu to better track the different capacity limits inside the Falcon Center Fitness Center/Auxiliary Gym, Falcon Outdoor Adventures Climbing Wall, Knowles Field House, and Hunt Arena Open Skate. All reservations can be made up to one week prior to the activity date/time.
We are hopeful the Phase 3 program offering will come mid-May when the student population lowers on-campus. Thank you for your patience. If you have question, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
