Fitness Center Summer 2021


We are pleased to be able to open the Fitness Center for the TCNJ Community during the 2021 Summer In order to mitigate the spread of Covid-19, and meet the reopening requirements for the state of NJ, we will be opening the facility with some restrictions and procedures to keep users safe. These will include, but not limited to, all cardio machines being offline and the wearing of masks at all times while in the facility. The Fitness Center at Campus Town will maintain all restrictions and protocols even though they have been lifted in similar areas across the rest of the state.  This is a decision made in the best interest for the health and safety of our TCNJ community. More detailed information about opening can be found below.
