Facility Rules


The fitness facilities are operated on an open recreation concept. Therefore, team/group workouts are not allowed. Individuals or groups may not dominate any area of the facility or piece of equipment. Participants are also expected to move from machine to machine at a reasonable rate.


Students must present a valid SUNY Cortland ID card each time they enter the facility. No other form of ID is acceptable. All other eligible participants must present a current membership card, as well as their SUNY Cortland ID Card.


Misuse or falsification of ID cards is not tolerated. Altered or misused ID cards will be confiscated as evidence and the abuser will be referred to the Judicial Review Board for disciplining.


Participants must be at least 16 years of age. 


In order to maintain a safe and sanitary environment and to protect upholstery on equipment, everyone must: Have a towel in their possession at all times to wipe sweat off equipment (wash cloths are not acceptable) Wear a shirt and sneakers (no open footwear) at all times Not wear jeans or cutoff jeans because metal rivets tear upholstery.


Bags, coats, and personal items are not allowed beyond the coat rack/cubby area within each facility. Recreational Sports, Student Affairs, and SUNY Cortland are not responsible for lost or stolen items.


Tobacco, gum, food and drink (unless water in a covered plastic bottle) are not allowed inside the facilities.


Participants must respect the authority of the fitness staff and respond to their directions accordingly.


Participants must follow all posted instructions for proper equipment use, according to the manufacturer's intended purpose. 


Participants must return all equipment to its proper place after use and report malfunctioning or broken equipment to the staff.
