  • Campus Recreation Center Spring 2021 Procedures
  • Evans Commons Recreation Center Reservation No-Show Policy

    The Evans Commons Recreation Center has implemented a reservation system for the Lindenwood Community through IM Leagues for the Fall 2020 Semester. Due to a large amount of no-shows we will be tracking attendance beginning on 9/8. A no-show is defined as making a reservation and not showing up for the reservation. A detailed breakdown of the policy is below:

    One (1) No-Show = Freebie
    Two (2) No-Shows = Warning Email from Campus Recreation Pro Staff informing you that further no-shows will result in a suspension of access to the Rec Center.
    Three (3) No-Shows – One (1) week suspension from the Rec Center.
    Four (4) No-Shows and Up = An additional week suspension from the Rec Center as needed.

    Our goal is that everyone who wants to use the Rec Center has the opportunity. Please note that a suspension from the Rec Center also includes our “Walk-In Weekends”. If you made a reservation and are no longer able to attend please e-mail Richie Provaznik at
