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).
The physical, mental and emotional benefits recreational activity provides are critical to our overall health and wellbeing, especially during times of stress. This page will be regularly updated with programs and resources that encourage you to keep moving while also staying connected with Duke Rec & PE. Another way to get live updates is by following @dukerec on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. While we may not be able to provide a physical space to recreate, we can still encourage and support each other by staying active remotely!
