CRW Policies


CRW Policies

  • Emergency Closing

    If the University of Baltimore is closed due to an emergency or extreme weather, Campus Recreation and Wellness (CRW) facilities will also be closed. Please dial the UB Emergency Notification line at 410.837.4201 for emergency updates or visit the  public safety website  for more information about the university closing policies.

    If the University opens late:
    • CRW Facilities will open when the University opens. All CRW programs will follow their regular schedule after the University opens.
    • The CRW offices will open when the University opens.
    If the University closes early:
    • CRW Facilities and offices will close when the University closes.
    • All CRW programs scheduled after the University closes will be cancelled or postponed. (Intramural Sports, Group Exercise classes, Golf Lessons, Personal Training, Sport Clubs activities).
    If the University is closed for the day:
    • CRW Facilities and offices will be closed for the day.
    • All CRW programs will be cancelled or postponed.
  • Accidents and Insurance

    The Department of Campus Recreation and Wellness (CRW), the Division for Student Affairs, and the University of Baltimore are not responsible for injuries incurred in intramural, recreational, fitness and sport club activities. CRW will provide first aid if possible, and along with the University Police, will solicit transportation to a hospital if necessary. Medical expenses beyond those covered by the participant’s insurance are the responsibility of the participant.

    Participants should know and be able to meet the physical demands of any activity in which they are to engage. Each activity has a certain degree of risk, some more than others. CRW STRONGLY recommends all students not covered by health and accident insurance purchase student insurance.

    Information about Student Health Services can be found at our Student Health Services page.
