Facility Updates

  • *OPEN: Monday, September 16* Recreation has renovated the Women’s Locker Room office space on the first floor of the IMA Building to create a new Main Issue Area. This new space will accommodate all locker room patrons at one centralized location with access from the hallway. Our staff will be working in a non-binary gendered location which allows us to more efficiently staff this area – i.e., we will no longer have “Women’s Locker Room Staff” and “Men’s Locker Room Staff”. This change will require that patrons adapt to a new routine when using the locker rooms or checking out towels and equipment. We are excited about the efficiencies we’ll gain by updating and modernizing our facilities and processes, and we appreciate your patience during the construction.

Safety at Night

To ensure your safety when leaving UW Recreation facilities at night, different organizations at the UW provide some options that are free and may be available to you:


NightRide is a UW shuttle service that provides a safe and easy way for U-PASS members living in the general university area (see service map) to get home at night. Shuttles for the east and west route zones make their first stop at the IMA front entrance and run every 20 minutes during operating hours. All shuttles are wheelchair accessible.

Husky NightWalk

The Husky NightWalk program is a safety walking program provided by the UW Police Department and operated by security guard staff members.

Questions About Accessibility?
