The University of Arizona’s Campus Recreation has recently unveiled its five-month long locker room renovation endeavor. Key innovations include fourteen private, all-gender cabanas, top of the line lockers in multiple sizes, all wheelchair accessible amenities, and an open lounge between locker rooms that leads to the pool deck. This undertaking was started with its users, the UA community, in mind and incorporates many of their wants and needs. An official Grand Opening/Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is scheduled for October 26 during Homecoming Weekend to inaugurate this state of the art project.

In the spirit of incorporating our members into the design and dedication process, Campus Rec held a Naming Contest to see who can come up with the most creative and applicable name for the new lounge area. From all the entries received, we have selected the top 3 names*:

  • The Oasis (or The Rec Oasis)

  • The RECRoom (Or Rec Room)

  • REC Cat Retreat

Cast your vote here!


*The author of the winning name will be honored as part of the ribbon cutting ceremony and receive a free Campus Rec shirt.
