Lied to open Thursday

Lied Recreation Athletic Center will open at 6 a.m. Thursday, said Mike Giles, director of recreation services.

The final test came back negative for E. Coli, and the majority of services will be available for students and patrons Thursday.

“We will not be able to open the racquetball courts or the turf on the first floor inside the track,” Giles said. 

Everything else in the building will be open, Giles said. This includes second and third floor rooms and equipment, locker rooms, basketball courts, fitness classes and bathroom facilities. 

Giles was unsure whether the building will have hot water. Lied has not had steam since the flooding and will not know until Thursday if hot water will be available. 

“We’re excited to get things moving and for students to be able to use the facilities again,” Giles said.
