This Week in Michigan Tech Recreation


The SDC’s spring break building schedule has been announced. There will be no HuskiesFit Group Exercise Classes during spring break. 

The boilers that heat Gates Tennis Center are no longer functioning. Our facilities team has been working hard to keep our building warm for the time being with emergency space heaters. Starting Tuesday, February 22nd, we will have two large temporary units heating our building until a new boiler is delivered and installed.  It will cause a little extra noise than we are used to at Gates. 

Court 4 will be out of commission for the time being where the units will be housed.  It can still be used for pickleball with a day in advance reservation, giving time to prepare the space.  As a reminder, the ball machine can now be used on any court because we have court divider nets.  There are outlets on the wall behind each of the courts. 

Unfortunately, this also means that we will not have any hot water at Gates Tennis Center until we have a new boiler installed.  If you have a need for the showers, we can issue you access to the locker rooms at the SDC. 

We apologize for the inconvenience over the course of the next couple of weeks.  Please feel free to reach out to Kristin Yep ( with any questions or concerns you may have.
