Fitness Center Policies and Procedures

(Applies to Mount Carmel, North Haven and York Hill facilities)

  • No one will be admitted without a validated Quinnipiac ID. (A card is validated upon completion of the online waiver.)

  • Appropriate workout clothing is required; closed toe athletic shoes, athletic style bottoms with no buttons or zippers, tops that cover the full torso and midriff; the fitness center staff reserves the right to render final judgement on if something complies with the dress code posted at all facilities.
  • Fitness Center staff members are available to assist with fitness equipment needs and maintain a safe and sanitary environment for all patrons—however, they are not personal trainers.
  • Users are responsible for wiping down equipment thoroughly after use; paper towels and cleanser are available in each corner in the Fitness Center and in each Cardio Corner of the track.
  • All dumbbells and plates should be returned to their original location after use.
  • The use of chalk is prohibited.
  • Weight clamps/clips are required for all barbell lifts and can be loaned out in exchange for a QCard at the front desk.

  • Users must sign up for all cardio equipment (limit: 30 minutes per piece).
  • Users must attend to sign up; no phone reservations.
  • Users may not sign up more than two hours in advance.
  • Use of the facility is at your own risk. Users should request help if they are unfamiliar with the equipment.
