The Cage Center will be reopening on a limited basis beginning Wednesday, May20th. Access will be limited to faculty, staff, students living on campus, and immediate family members of faculty and staff also living on campus.

The fitness center and track will be the two primary areas available for workout purposes. All other areas of the building will remain closed. In the fitness center, a maximum number of 10 people will be allowed at any given time. People will be allowed to enter the fitness center on a first-come first-served basis, and will be encouraged to keep workouts to a maximum of 1 hour. Once capacity has been reached, the front desk attendants will keep a waitlist for those wishing to workout. Patrons may wait in the lobby or on the track until they are granted permissions to enter the fitness center.

The department of recreation will post recommendations inside the fitness center for maintaining social distancing while using equipment. All patrons are strongly encouraged to be responsible for wiping down and cleaning any equipment they use while in the fitness center. Gym wipes will be available at their normal locations. Hours of operation will be as follows:

Monday - Friday

The Cage Athletic and Recreation Center is a focal point of student activity on Berry’s 27,000-acre campus. The 131,000-square-foot facility houses a performance arena that seats nearly 2,000 for varsity athletics, a natatorium with observation seating, an expansive fitness center, racquetball courts and an indoor walk/jog track among its many amenities.

Numerous athletic, intramural and fitness programs are offered within the facility which serve to enrich the lifestyles of our campus community. Athletic department offices, as well as Kinesiology department offices and classrooms, are housed in the Cage Center. The complex is named for alumnus and trustee Steve Cage whose $10 million gift provided support for the Cage Center and other campus priorities.
