Effective August 5, 2021, BGSU will require face coverings for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, in indoor public settings on our campuses. This includes classrooms, laboratories, libraries, the Student Recreation Center and Perry Field House, gathering spaces and areas outside of individual, enclosed spaces like residence hall rooms and individual offices.

Face coverings are not required when working alone in an office or classroom, when eating or drinking in a dining facility, or when actively exercising indoors.

For continued information, please visit the BGSU COVID-19 Response website.

What to Expect at Recreation and Wellness Facilities

As BGSU repopulates campus, the health and safety of our communities are the top priorities. There will be inherent risk in all activities, however, a calculated and thorough return to campus plan allows us to mitigate much of this risk. With direction from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the State of Ohio and Ohio Department of Health, and the Wood County Health Department, Recreation and Wellness continues working in conjunction with university officials to implement plans so we can all stay well together.

All schedules and information on this site is subject to change.  

  • Accessible entry is available at the Secondary Entrance off of Mercer Road. Patrons requiring use of this entrance need to call 419.372.2705 upon arrival for staff assistance.
  • Validate membership with an SRC staff member – finger vein scanners are not in use.

If you're not feeling well or are experiencing symptoms related to COVID-19 such as cough, shortness of breath, or fever please stay home. Refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for a complete list of symptoms.
