The primary purpose of Deas Hall is to provide instructional support for students in the Department of Health and Human Performance (HHP), along with their college intramural, club, and recreational athletic activities. Deas Hall is also critical to the operations of the Office of the Commandant and ROTC units.
There is no fee for current faculty, staff or dependents to use Deas Hall.
Faculty, staff, spouses, and dependents are expected to have a Citadel ID when using Deas Hall. Be prepared to show it to a staff member when entering the building.
Reminders of Risk
The priority activities of Deas Hall increase the risk of COVID-19 exposure to the casual user. Because activities in Deas Hall may involve heavy respiration and communal use of high-touch equipment in an indoor environment, faculty and staff are strongly urged to exercise outdoors when possible.
Dependents under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian responsible for the conduct, safety, and activities of the minor.
Faculty, staff, their spouses, and their dependents may not bring guests into Deas Hall to use the exercise or recreational facilities.
