- No towels will be provided.
- Any items left in the SHAC will be turned in to the Department of Public Safety for pick up.
- If there is a need to close the SHAC on one of the scheduled open days, this webpage will be updated as well as signage at the point of entry to the SHAC.
The Findlay-area Campus fitness center will remain closed at this time since there is no staffing that would allow us to ensure safe usage and regular cleaning.
These conditions are subject to change based on the status of COVID-19 and on recommendations and guidance from the health department and state of Ohio.
The health and safety of our campus community remains at the forefront as decisions are made. For additional information please contact Amy Giordano at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
