Items of significant value found in the facility are immediately delivered to the Office of Campus Police. The Department of Campus Recreation & Wellness assumes no responsibility for lost or stolen articles. Patrons are encouraged to secure all belongings before entering the Campus Recreation & Wellness areas within the Physical Education Complex.


You must present your Eagle Card ID or Wellness Center Membership ID at the Front Desk for a wristband if you want to use the Campus Recreation & Wellness facilities. Wristbands must be worn on either wrist during your use of the facilities, and should be put on in view of the Front Desk staff.

Please note that the wristbands use a hypoallergenic adhesive. If you are concerned about skin irritation from the wristbands, please purchase a sweat band to wear on your wrist and place the wristband around it.

Wearing a wristband identifies you to the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center staff as being a valid member of the Coppin State University community or a guest thereof, and allows you to use the facilities. Wristband checks are used to ensure that only members of the Coppin State University community, and their guests, are using the facilities.

If you use the Campus Recreation & Wellness Center facilities and do not wear a wristband, you will be asked to please return to the Front Desk to receive a wristband in order to continue using the facilities.
