Student Life Center

We would like to remind everyone that the health and wellness of our members is our top priority. We are continually monitoring the situation and will follow all guidelines to ensure everyone's safety. 
To give an update on memberships, we will be adjusting the end date of each facility membership to reflect the period that the facility has been closed. This will be done automatically upon re-opening. 
Locker services will be extended until further notice. Expiring lockers will not be cleared out and emails will be sent out to those with expired lockers after re-opening. 
If you prefer to have a refund for the remainder of your membership, please reach out to Theresa Montez at 607-753-5585 or
As soon as we have an update, we will notify all members. We miss all of you and hope you are all staying healthy.
