KLARC Operations

All users will be required to scan in at the front entrance monitor station using a valid BUID and go directly to their workout venue. Once the workout is finished, users are asked to check out and exit the facility through the main entry doors.

For everyone’s health and safety, we ask that all users follow directional and information signage, staff instructions and campus mitigation strategies that prioritize physical distancing and sanitation. Facility signage will remind all users to wash or sanitize hands before, during and after exercise and strength equipment use. Cleaning supplies will also be provided throughout the facility.
