Campus Recreation

The active pursuit of happiness and well-being. 

Starting Monday, October 19, 2020 reservations will be required for the Climbing Wall

Campus Recreation will limit indoor climbing wall use to no more than 20 people at a time.  This change is in response to ISU’s recent adoption of enhanced COVID-related safety guidelines. A reservation is required for each person. No groups will be accepted unless space is available.

Reservations are easy: click the link below to be directed to our reservations page. Follow prompts, choose an open time slot, enter your name, email, and phone number.  You will receive a confirmation email with your reservation details. 

Reserve 90 minutes of climbing up to 6 days in advance and up to an hour prior to reservation start time. Reserving two times slots in a single day is prohibited.  Please make sure if you are climbing with a friend, they have reserved a spot as well.  If you are 10 minutes late for your reserved time, your reservation will be canceled.
