Penn State To Reopen Rec Hall’s Hepper Fitness Center October 12

Penn State will reopen Rec Hall’s Hepper Fitness Center on Monday, October 12, the university announced Sunday.

The facility will be open to students from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m on Saturdays, and from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sundays.

The announcement follows the reopening of the IM building on Friday, September 25. The White Building will remain closed until further notice.

Students can schedule a workout reservation through an online portal or through the Penn State Campus Rec app. To adhere to capacity limits, students can sign up for 75-minute time slots once a day. Registration for each activity session goes “live” 48 hours before the session start time.

The Hepper Fitness Center will offer free-weight, plate-loaded, and selectorized strength equipment, in addition to a floor exercise area, treadmills, ellipticals, bikes, steppers, and rowers.

The facility will operate similarly to the IM building in terms of social distancing guidelines and mask policies. The new rules and regulations are broken down here.
