RAC Renewal Renovation Begins

December 13, 2019 11:38 AM

The renovation of the Retriever Activities Center (RAC) is scheduled to begin in December 2019. The RAC will be closed to users for the holiday break beginning on December 20, 2019. Construction will be underway when the campus reopens on January 2, 2020. 

During this eighteen month construction project, the front lobby will remain the primary access point for the building and the elevator will be operational. The fieldhouse portion of the building, which includes the track and the basketball arena, will be closed until the end of February 2021. At least two basketball courts, a weight room, a group exercise room, and locker rooms will remain open throughout the renovation; please check signs in and around the building for directions.

A pool will also remain open throughout the renovation, though access routes will change periodically. For initial construction activities (December 20, 2019 - March 31, 2020), there will be no interior connection to the pool; instead the pool lobby doors on the Sondheim side of the building will serve as the pool access point.

The Facilities Management RAC Renewal project page will be updated regularly and will include construction information on phases, timelines, accessible routes, and operations. We anticipate completion of this project in July 2021. 

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to improve recreation facilities for the UMBC community.
