The Silcox Gymnasium will be going under a renovation project this Spring 2023. This will necessitate closure of the 2nd floor recreation facility during the semester as the project advances. Courts are tentatively scheduled to reopen fully by the start of the Fall 2023 semester. 

When completed, a new roof along with other necessary fixes will continue to improve the recreational experience for our active students, faculty, and staff. The project is scheduled to be completed by December 2023.

During this time, please check out our open recreation calendar on the Campus Recreation Services website for an updated open play schedule for the Johnson Gymnasium.
