Starting April 1, the Morse Center will be under the management of the UT Office of Recreation.

“We are excited about this opportunity to provide quality recreation and physical fitness services across all campuses,” said Demond Pryor, director of the Office of Recreation.

This transition will allow UT employees access to the Morse Center on Health Science Campus along with Student Recreation Center on Main Campus at no cost.

In the coming weeks, employees will be asked to complete a quick registration process that will take effect Wednesday, April 1. During this transition, employees should know:

• The Morse Center hours of operations will remain the same: Monday through Friday, 5 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday, 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m.

• Group exercise classes will remain, and programming will be managed by UT Rocket Wellness.

All current services will be evaluated to determine future offerings.

“It is our hope that our employees, faculty and staff will look to the Morse Center and the UT Student Recreation Center for your recreation and physical fitness needs,” Pryor said.
