What facilities do students, faculty, and staff have access to?

Additionally, Phoenix Card holders that are not students, faculty, and staff have access to the Koury Center and South Gym. To access the facility, simply present your Phoenix Card at the entrance or welcome desk at any facility.

What are the hours of operation for each facility?

Facility hours are posted on our Hours of Operation page. Any variations to regular hours of operation are also posted on the Campus Recreation & Wellness homepage, the RecWell app, and social media.

Can I bring a guest into Campus Recreation & Wellness facilities?

Yes! Any Phoenix Card holder can bring up to two guests at a time. Guests must present a photo identification when checking into the facility.

How do I reserve a Campus Recreation & Wellness facility?

Many Campus Recreation & Wellness facilities can be reserved by students, faculty, and staff. Students must reserve facilities through Phoenix Connect and faculty/staff must reserve facilities through 25Live. Our full facility reservation policies can be found on the Facilities Policies & Procedures page.

Are lockers available for use?

Yes! There are daily and long-term lockers available in the Koury Center. Any items in daily use lockers must be removed by the end of the day. Long-term lockers can be reserved for the academic year – contact to reserve a long-term locker.

What is the difference between Intramurals and Club Sports?

Intramurals are recreational leagues and tournaments for Elon students to participate with other Elon students. Participants can form their own teams, or be added to existing teams.  Leagues last approximately a half semester, with 1-2 games per week. Club Sports are student organizations that have multiple practices per week. Many clubs compete locally, regionally, and/or nationally against other colleges and universities. The best way to learn about a specific club is to contact the club directly – current club contact information can be found on the Club Sports website or PhoenixCONNECT.

Does Campus Recreation & Wellness offer group exercise classes?
