Welcome Center

Our friendly Facility Staff and Supervisors are always prepared and willing to help anyone who needs assistance or help with accessing a piece of equipment, getting to another area of the facility, or answering any questions. The Welcome Center provides a lower ledge for access to get towels or for other needs.



Equipment Checkout

The Equipment Checkout has a lower ledge for easier accessibility.

Locker Rooms

Both the men's and women's locker rooms on the lower level have accessible showers and stalls. We are currently in process to be compliant with locker room benches and access to lockers in both locker rooms.

Changing Room (Room #3)

The Ambler SRFC is compliant with sinks and ledges in the changing room. The pipes under the sinks are hidden so there is space to wheel under them. There is also an accessible stall in the changing room as well as an ADA compliant bench for changing.


Day Use Lockers

These day-use lockers are accessible in the CRT1 (Cardiovascular Resistance Training; 1 indicates first floor) and CRT2 (2 indicates second floor) locations, by both the Jayhawk and Oread Basketball courts, and on the lower level by the Chalk Rock. These lockers are all labeled as accessible as well.
