You will not have access to the main gymnasium/basketball courts on weekends and holidays. Access will be denied to individuals who only want to use the amenities in the locker rooms.

You will not be allowed to participate in any Northeastern sponsored recreation programs: Intramural Leagues, Club Sports, Personal Training, Group Fitness Classes and Instructional  Classes.


Equipment Check-Out

Locks, towels and equipment may be checked out with your ID. You are responsible for all equipment that you check-out and must reimburse Northeastern University for any lost or damaged equipment, before your ID is returned.


Safety and Security

The safety of all participants who use the Marino Recreation Center is our highest priority. Bicycles, in-line skates and skateboards are not allowed inside the building. Proper work-out attire must be worn in all public areas, with the exception of the locker rooms.

The use of the facilities in the Marino Recreation Center is strictly voluntary. Participants are responsible for their own health and safety and are cautioned to participate according to the limits determined by their physician and their knowledge of their own health status.

Please help us maintain a safe and secure environment by showing photo ID upon arrival, by locking your possessions in a locker, by keeping your locker key with you at all times. Gym bags, briefcases, back packs, jackets, food and  beverages are not allowed above the ground floor. We cannot be held responsible for lost items.

Failure to comply with these policies, as well as the policies of the University Recreation Office will result in termination of privileges.
