The athletic and recreational facilities of the Bellefield Hall, Trees Hall, and Fitzgerald Field House have been designed to accommodate faculty and staff during designated hours (http://www.intramurals.pitt.edu). During the academic year, the Athletic Facilities Scheduling Office posts available times for swimming, squash, racquetball, tennis, exercise rooms, indoor track, and other sports areas. A valid University ID card is necessary for admission. Lockers are available in Trees Hall on a day-to-day basis without charge; however, for these transient lockers, a lock must be provided by the user. For those wishing to rent a locker from September 1 through July 31 of the following year, a limited number of lockers are available at a nominal fee. The fee includes the locker, a lock, and certain items of basic clothing needed for recreational purposes. Equipment such as racquets, balls, etc. is not included in the rental fee.
For additional information, refer to University Policy 04-01-04, Use of University Athletic Facilities.
The Department of Health and Physical Activity in the School of Education usually conducts a summer program of instruction in a variety of sports and games for children of faculty and staff members. A small fee helps cover necessary instructional costs.
