Locker Room Opening 

Here is information on the opening of the locker rooms in Sparks (taken from a message sent out the campus community from Athletic Director Dave Rigsby):

On Tuesday, September 16, we will open the two public locker rooms adjacent to the swimming pool.  While we are still waiting for lockers for each of these spaces, the toilets, showers, sinks, and changing areas will be available beginning at 6:00 AM.  As lockers arrive, we will be required to temporarily close each space to allow for installation.  A Willamette University ID card is required to enter these public locker rooms.

In addition to the two public locker rooms, we will also open a gender-neutral restroom facility on the lower level of Sparks on Tuesday morning.  A second gender-neutral facility will open in a few weeks as our construction team finishes its work.

On Tuesday, we will also reopen the swimming pool for the campus community.  The first open swim will be held from 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM.  Please note that some additional work on the pool deck may require temporary closures later in the fall semester.

In approximately two weeks, we will open two additional locker rooms for use by Willamette University employees.  While employees will still have access to the public locker rooms described above, it is our hope that these other spaces will provide employees with additional flexibility and privacy.  Over the course of the fall term, we will assess the usage patterns of our newly renovated locker rooms and determine if there is need and remaining capacity for locker rentals.

UPDATE (9/25/2014)

Lockers have been installed in both general purpose locker rooms and they are both open for use.  Over the next few weeks we hope to be adding a few more lockers to each space along with some bench seating.  Just a reminder that all of the lockers are for day use only and for now we are not allowing locks to be left on overnight.
