Inclement Weather Policy

The Peter Courtney Health and Wellness Center (HWC) is included in the essential facilities and services of Western Oregon University. Therefore, when the campus is closed or classes are cancelled the Aquatic Center will default to Inclement Weather hours listed below.

Aquatic Center Inclement Weather Hours
Monday – Friday hours/programs start after 11:00am
Saturday
Sunday

The Campus Recreation inclement weather policy is designed to accommodate on-campus residents that desire to stay active during campus closures. We discourage anyone from driving in severe weather to campus in order to utilize Campus Recreation facilities or activities.

In cases of extremely severe weather, Campus Recreation reserves the right to determine whether or not the HWC building will be open or closed to protect the safety of its participants and staff. All or portions of facilities may be forced to close in the event that they are directly impacted by the weather. We strongly encourage individuals to call 503-838-9530; if no one answers the facility is likely closed.

In case of inclement weather, where Western Oregon University cancels academic classes:

  • All Campus Recreation community classes (learn-to-swim, youth climbing, etc) will be canceled.
  • All Campus Recreation practices and games (intramural and club sport) may be canceled.
