POLICIES


In order to provide an enjoyable experience for our guests, we ask that all patrons demonstrate respect for others by adhering to the Hadlock Student Center policies. Members and guests should familiarize themselves with the policies posted below and throughout the facility. Verbal instructions from HSC staff are for the safety and comfort of all guests, and must be followed at all times.

Membership and access information

George Fox University I.D.

To enter the Hadlock Student Center, members of the George Fox University community must have their current University ID card. An ID card is also required to check out most equipment (basketballs, climbing shoes, volleyballs, etc).

Individuals using an ID other than their own to gain access to the facility risk having privileges suspended -- for both the individual using the false ID and the valid member. Members may be denied entry without a card.

Attire

In an effort to promote safety, healthy body image, reduce the spread of communicable diseases, and to prevent additional wear and tear on the facility/equipment, all members and guests must adhere to the clothing standards for the Hadlock Student Center.

  • Attire must cover the chest, abdomen, back and side areas from hip to armpits.
  • Shorts must be long enough to cover the buttocks and groin while exercising or moving.
  • Pants and shorts must be free of rivets, zippers or buttons to be in the cardio/weight areas.
  • Sandals, crocs, clogs and other open shoes are not permitted in the HSC.
  • Non-marking shoes are required in gym and group fitness rooms
  • Vibram Five Finger shoes (and other similar shoes) are permitted to be worn throughout the HSC. Guests choosing to wear such shoes do so at their own risk.
  • For health/sanitation reasons, bare feet are not allowed anywhere except in the group fitness rooms when instructed by the class instructor.
  • Due to increased risk of injury, it is recommended that jewelry is removed prior to participating in any activities or before utilizing any equipment in the fitness areas.
  • HSC staff reserves the right to determine if attire and footwear meet clothing standards and may deny access.

Bags/Personal Items

Please store all items in designated day-use lockers and cubbies located on both floors throughout the facility. Unattended items will be collected and placed in lost and found if they are not stored in a day-use locker or cubby.

Lost and Found

Please contact the welcome center regarding lost or missing items. All items left in the facility overnight, or that have been in the facility for an extended period of time, will be added to the lost and found. Lost and found items will be kept for a minimum of seven days. Items that remain unclaimed will be donated to charity or move to the lost and found at Campus Public Safety.

Donations to charity will occur several times throughout the semester and at the beginning and end of each semester. To inquire about items which you believe you have left in the facility, visit the welcome center or call us at 503-554-3333. George Fox University and the staff members of the Hadlock Student Center are not responsible for lost, stolen or broken items.

Entrance/Exit

The Hadlock Student Center is a single entry/exit facility. Please use the glass doors on the north side of the building. Other exits are for emergency use only and are monitored with alarms.

Food/Drink

Water in a clear plastic container with a lid is allowed throughout the HSC. Chewing gum is prohibited in all activity areas. Tobacco products, drugs, and alcohol are prohibited in the facilities as well as on all GFU property. Anyone exhibiting signs of being under the influence of a controlled substance will be denied entry and referred to the Student Life Office.

Bicycles and Other Wheeled Vehicles

Wheeled vehicles (e.g., bicycles, skates, skateboards and scooters) are prohibited in the Hadlock Student Center. Bicycles may be parked in the provided outside racks at the owner's risk.

Cell Phones

Cell-phone use is not permitted in the locker rooms. The use of cell phones is permitted inside the recreation center as long as their use does not interfere with others' enjoyment of the facility or the safety of patrons. Please be courteous and move all cell phone conversations to a lobby or lounge area.

Closures

The Hadlock Student Center may be closed when warranted. During official university holidays and breaks, facilities may be closed or may operate on a limited schedule. In addition, required maintenance and staff training may necessitate the partial or full closure of the facility. All closures and amendments to the schedule will be posted in advance on the HSC website.

Comments and Concerns

There is a comment box located at the welcome center. Campus recreation staff read these comments daily and will respond accordingly.
