If you are concerned about another student and not sure what to do, and the student is NOT in immediate danger, you can share your concerns with the Stevens CARE Team. The CARE team is a network of Stevens professionals that provides academic, psychological, medical, and social support for students in need. For any situation involving immediate danger or a threat of danger that is time sensitive, please call Campus Police at 201-216-3911.

As the situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continues to evolve, many of us are experiencing feelings of uncertainty, anxiety, and fear, which can be overwhelming.

Should any urgent, time-sensitive issue arise on the Stevens campus, please call Stevens Campus Police at 201-216-5105 or 201-216-3911.

CAMPUS SERVICES, RESOURCES & HOURS
Athletic and Recreational Facilities
Stevens’ athletic and recreational facilities will open on Monday, February 1st. Due to limited occupancy, the facilities will only be open to students who are taking classes on campus or athletes practicing or competing; faculty and staff use of the facilities is not permitted at this time. The following facilities will be available to all enrolled students who are permitted on campus for hybrid classes or on-campus residence and are tested weekly for COVID-19:
- Schaefer Center Fitness Center
- Schaefer Center Swimming Pool
- Schaefer Center Swimming Pool Locker Rooms
- Canavan Arena
- Auxiliary Gymnasium (bottom level of Schaefer)
- DeBaun Athletic Complex
- Tennis Courts
Operating hours are 9 AM – 8 PM from Monday - Friday and 12 PM – 6 PM on Saturday and Sunday unless otherwise specified. Students must enter and exit all facilities in both Schaefer and Walker from the front desk area in the lobby of the Schaefer Center. Unauthorized entry or exit from another location or allowing others to enter from an unauthorized door is strictly prohibited and can result in suspended use of the athletic facilities.
Stevens is following all New Jersey and NCAA protocols and guidelines and as a result, occupancy of the facilities must be significantly reduced and an on-line reservation system has been implemented to maintain capacity limits and allow for contact tracing, if needed. Time limits will also be strictly enforced to ensure that as many students as possible can work out.
All students must wear a mask at all times and practice social distancing. Students are encouraged to minimize the number of personal belongings brought into the facilities.
MindBody, an on-line reservation system, has been implemented to allow students to reserve space. Students are also required to complete an online waiver before accessing the facilities. Below are detailed instructions regarding how to complete this process if you have not done so already:
- Please complete your MindBody registration on the Campus Recreation website. Be sure to use your Stevens email address and check the boxes that allow you to receive email and texts.
- You will immediately receive a confirmation email instructing you to log into MyStevens and sign the Athletic Department waiver. After the waiver is signed, you will receive a copy via email to keep for your records. If you are under 18 years of age, you must pick up the waiver in person at the Schaefer Center lobby and have it signed by a parent or guardian and then returned to the Schaefer Athletic Center front desk.
- Within 48 hours after you sign the waiver, you will receive a verification email with instructions on how to reserve classes and time slots within the athletic facilities using the MindBody reservation system.
If you have questions about the MindBody reservation system, please email [email protected]. If you have general questions about athletic facility use, please email Russ Rogers, Director of Athletics, at [email protected].
The Schaefer Center Sports Medicine Facilities and the Walker Gymnasium Varsity Weight Room are only available to varsity student-athletes who are permitted on campus for hybrid classes, on-campus residence, or are in-season athletes coming to campus for practice or competition.
