Use of Athletics Center Facilities and Fitness Center
All students, faculty, staff and retirees using the fitness center or gymnasium are required to present and/or swipe their valid Penn State Photo ID for entrance to the facilities.
Use of the gymnasium is restricted to currently enrolled Penn State DuBois students, faculty, staff and retirees or those involved in Penn State-sponsored activities during approved events. Penn State faculty, staff and retirees are also permitted one family member with them; however, the individual will be responsible for their accompanied family member at all times. The gymnasium can be used by non-PSU individuals if the event is sponsored by the University or a University recognized club or organization during an approved event which is open to the public or if an outside event has been approved for use by the Director of Business Services.The gymnasium must be staffed by a CPR/First Aid trained employee when the room is being used by anyone for athletic purposes. During the day, students, faculty, staff and retirees may use the gymnasium during the posted open gym hours. The gym will be locked during times it is not staffed.
During athletic practices the gym may be used by athletes provided the First Aid/CPR trained coach is on site. When practice is over, each coach is responsible for closing the gym and locking the doors and ensuring that all student athletes have exited the gymnasium.
Penn State DuBois students can only use the fitness center when it is staffed by a CPR/First Aid trained employee during posted hours. Fitness center staff can be identified by their fitness center staff shirt. All users of the center must swipe their Penn State ID card at the desk.
