» Doti-Struppa Rock Wall

All Chapman Fitness & Recreation facilities are closed effective March 11th, until further notice. These are necessary, preventative measures to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and to minimize health and safety risks to our students, faculty, staff, and community.

Please visit the Rec Portal for free virtual programming and resources such as GroupX via Zoom, the Daily Fitness Challenge, home workouts tips, and videos. Fall virtual programming will be updated on August 31. When the conditions allow, small student gatherings/events that meet CU Safely Back plan guidelines, will be coordinated on-campus.
