The Recreation Facilities Planning Study will provide a preliminary assessment of campus recreation needs and identify opportunities to develop new resources to improve student life. The study includes readily achievable short-term solutions to increase the capacity and scope of indoor and outdoor programmable recreation space, as well as potential small scale and informal recreational amenities on all campuses. Focus has been placed on identifying existing underutilized resources that could be reprogrammed to enhance student recreation and campus cohesion. Simple fit studies will also be included to identify gross space requirements for long term conceptual planning of larger installations.

A committee will be formed early this fall to engage the UML community in the establishment of goals and evaluation of potential sites. The committee will include representatives from Student Government, Student Affairs, Recreation, Athletics, Faculty, Parking/Transportation, Campus Police, Community Relations and Advancement.
