UW Half Acre Recreation and Wellness Center Sets Spring Semester Hours

January 25, 2021

The University of Wyoming’s Half Acre Recreation and Wellness Center is open for the spring semester with in-person and virtual programs.

New hours -- effective through Tuesday, March 30 -- will be 7:30 a.m.-8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays; 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays; and noon-5 p.m. Sundays. Updated spring facility hours and participation guidelines can be found at

“We are happy to welcome back currently enrolled students, and currently employed faculty and staff who are participating in the surveillance testing program on campus,” says Lena Newlin, Half Acre Recreation and Wellness Center assistant director. “At this time, because of restrictions within the on-campus testing programs, board retired members, cooperating agency members, spouses, dependents and other guests will not have access to Half Acre.”

Completion of a COVID-19 test and access through the UW COVID Pass program are required before using the Half Acre facilities. Face coverings are required at all times.

In order to comply with the Wyoming public health order on public spaces and UW policies, all patrons are required to make reservations for designated workout times in Half Acre. Reservations will be accepted for the pool, group fitness classes and the Outdoor Program rental center. 

In-person and virtual offerings are available for intramural sports and fitness programs, and through the Outdoor Program and the Wellness Center.
