To minimize health and safety risks to Duke students, faculty, staff and the larger community, Duke Recreation & Physical Education facilities have temporarily closed. Communication regarding future hours of operation and programming will be provided on our website and social media platforms (@dukerec).
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 and closure of rec centers, staff have been creatively coming up with ideas on how to virtually engage students.
