As the City of New Orleans begins its phased reopening, we know many of you are curious about when the Reily Student Recreation Center will resume operations. The Department of Campus Recreation continues to follow Tulane University guidelines for business resumption. As this is an extremely fluid process, we do not have a resumption date at this time. 

Due to expected capacity limitations, the priority of access to the Reily Center will be given to Tulane students, faculty, and staff during the initial phase of our reopening. We are not charging members during this time and will only reinstate billing once each membership category can begin accessing the facility. Our pool may also be closed for necessary repairs during the initial phases. 

We invite you to participate in the multiple Virtual Activities we are offering. New instructional videos, healthy recipes, virtual group exercise classes, and other activities are added weekly to our YouTube channel, social media feeds, and website. 

We will continue to communicate updates related to business resumption on our website, social media accounts, mobile app, and via email. If you have not done so, please sign up to receive our email alerts

We look forward to serving our members again soon!

The Reily Student Recreation Center is first and foremost, a location for students to recreate, work and grow. Administered by Tulane's Department of Campus Recreation, we operate differently than a private gym in the following ways:

  • We sell a limited number of memberships to non-affiliates to ensure our students have ample equipment and facilities available for use.
  • We periodically close and have altered hours of operation due to University sporting events, holiday breaks, and necessary maintenance projects that must be completed outside of the semester terms.
  • We periodically host tournaments and special events that will impact the availability of certain spaces in the facility.
  • We regularly reserve space for varsity athletics programs, club sports, and intramural sports.
  • Most positions in the building are staffed by Tulane students. We are dedicated to providing a safe and positive work environment that prepares these individuals for life after Tulane. Disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated.

Facility Access

  • For the safety and security of our members, you must have your Splash Card or Key Tag to access the facility. Individuals using a key tag must have a photo in our system or present a second form of photo identification for each entry. We will allow you one exception per semester if you can provide another form of identification. Subsequent occurrences of a forgotten Splash Card or Key Tag will require the purchase of a daily pass with membership verification. Lax security leads to an overcrowded gym and increased occurrences of theft and undesirable behavior. We take security seriously to ensure a positive experience for paying members.

Lost Splash Cards can be replaced in the Card Services office. Lost Key Tags can be replaced at the Member Services desk for $5.
