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 currently enrolled students. Deas Hall does not employ a fourth-class system. All currently enrolled students and currently employed faculty and staff may use fitness and recreational areas.
Students, faculty, and staff 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
Because activities in Deas Hall may involve heavy respiration and communal use of high-touch equipment in an indoor environment, there is an increased risk of exposure to COVID-19. Therefore, students are strongly urged to exercise outdoors when possible.
Dependents (e.g., children) of students are not permitted to use Deas Hall.
Guests are not permitted in Deas Hall to use the exercise or recreational equipment.
Sports & Fitness Equipment
Deas Hall has a variety of equipment available for check-out. You must present your Citadel ID card to the Equipment Room; your card will be returned when the equipment is returned. There is no exception to this rule.
Bring your own:
Personal hand sanitizer
Weight belt and lift straps
Before and after use, wipe down equipment in the cardio and weight rooms and mat room. Pick up trash in locker rooms and workout areas and use recycling bins for bottles and cans.
Use hand sanitizer or wash hands before, during, and after using equipment and spaces in Deas Hall.
Respect others when using Deas Hall, and remember that classroom areas are quiet zones. Return dumbbells and weight plates to their racks after use. Ask others to do the same.
Profanity is offensive and unprofessional. Recognize that its use is counter to becoming a principled leader.
Deas Hall does not employ a fourth-class system.
