General Closing Guidelines
The Fitness Center doors will be closed and locked at closing time. We will allow a ten minute grace period for members to change clothes and exit the building. Everyone needs to be out of the building within ten minutes after the designated closing time.

Inclement Weather

WellWorks will close due to inclement weather when there is a Level 3 Travel Advisory for Athens County.

Please know that WellWorks will close to be in compliance with any Ohio University campus closings due to inclement weather or any emergency/safety precautions taken by the University.

We will keep our Facebook page as up-to-date as possible in these circumstances.


Summer Hours

Annually, WellWorks adjusts its operating hours during the summer terms.
