OUR GOAL is to CREATE THE MOST INCLUSIVE & ACCESSIBLE Locker Room. HOWEVER, DURING CONSTRUCTION, THERE WILL BE SOME IMPACT TO REC CENTER ACCESSIBILITY.

Campus Recreation, Planning Design and Construction, Breckenridge Architect Group, and Lloyd Construction have worked closely with the Disability Resource Center to ensure the facility will meet the needs of all members of the University of Arizona community. The design has been reviewed and vetted to ensure the renovation will provide improved facilities for all users.
