SHAC Safety Measures

  2. Areas open at this time are the cardio, weight machines, free weight rooms and the track. The basketball courts and other gym facilities will continue to be closed.

New Owens Express Card is Required

Please note that all students, faculty and staff will need to have the new Owens Express card in order to gain access to the SHAC. Old Owens Express ID cards will not allow a faculty, staff or student to enter and utilize these facilities.

If you are obtaining this new Owens Express Card, there will not be a charge. If you are issued the new Owens Express card, and should need a replacement, there will be a charge.

Please visit www.owens.edu/expresscard/ for details on hours and locations to obtain your new Owens Express Card. The new Owens Express card began being issued for staff, faculty and students in August 2020, so anyone who has the new card at this time does not need a replacement in order to access the SHAC. If you are unsure if you have the ‘new’ or ‘old’ Owens Express Card, please contact the DPS Customer Service area for support.
