Olympic Strength Room Policies (PDF)



The Olympic Strength Room is now open during all hours that the Student Recreation Center is open!  


  • The Olympic Strength Room features three powerlifting racks with attached Olympic lifting platforms, bars, and bumper plates.
  • A Campus Recreation employee will staff the room during open hours.
  • Chalk will be allowed and provided by Campus Recreation.
  • The room will be open to students and Rec Center members.
  • The area is to be utilized for deadlifts off the floor, as well as the Olympic lifts (snatch, clean, and jerk) and their variations.
  • Students and members wishing to use the area for Olympic lifting will be assessed on their lifting proficiency by the Olympic Strength Room attendant. This measure is taken to ensure safe use of the room and equipment.
  • Individuals who do not pass the assessment may use the space to improve technique under the guidance of our staff.
  • Individuals who misrepresent their assessment status will be subject to the same penalties as someone who has misused an ID, a two-week suspension from Campus Recreation.
