Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

As we continue to monitor updates regarding the quickly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the health, safety, and well-being of all campus community members remain at the forefront. Our Incident Command and Executive Management Council teams are meeting daily and in continuous discussion to respond quickly and adapt contingency plans as necessary.

With this in mind, out of an abundance of caution, the University Fitness Center will be indefinitely closed. We recognize this may be disappointing. Valparaiso University is working hard to maintain a healthy environment for all of our campus and follow social distancing recommendations from the CDC

In all cases, we encourage individuals to practice social distancing and clean and disinfect personal areas when possible.

As we continue to adjust to these unprecedented circumstances, I am grateful for your understanding and commitment to a safe and healthy campus community.
