“The rec center will receive an interior facelift,” said Demond Pryor, director of the Office of Recreation in the UT Division of Student Affairs. “There will be major painting inside, as well as replacement of the carpeting that has been there since the center opened in 1990.”

During the shutdown, the weight room floor will be converted to a rubber surface, and more than $90,000 of improvements will go into the pool. The center and equipment also will receive a deep clean and general maintenance.

“We are really excited for all the upcoming improvements to be more up-to-date and more modernized,” Pryor said.

The Morse Center, located in Dowling Hall on UT’s Health Science Campus, will continue to be available to all eligible students, faculty, staff and current rec center members. Summer hours for the center can be found here.

Additionally, rec center members can use the pool at the Radisson Hotel at The University of Toledo on Health Science Campus. Rocket IDs must be shown before use.

For the Radisson Hotel pool hours, call 419.381.6800.
