Campus Recreation > Return to The Ray: Reopening Information
The Ray reopened its doors on July 17 for the first time in almost four months. We have modified our hours, facility spaces, and procedures to comply with state and local guidelines in serving you. Here are some major considerations for members to know as we reopen; check for more details in the sections below:
Check below for more details and all reopening information; if you have other questions, email email@example.com.

Monday - Thursday: 6 am - 8 pmFriday: 6 am - 7 pmSaturday / Sunday: 9 am - 3 pm
Unfortunately we are only able to serve current members over the age of 16 and DePaul students, faculty, and staff at this time. We hope to welcome back children and guests soon!
Monday - Friday: 6 am - 6:45 pmSaturday / Sunday: 9 am - 2:45 pm
Pool lanes must be reserved for use online or through the Ray App prior to entering the pool. Lane reservations are available on the hour for a 45-minute time block to allow for cleaning between use. Reservations open 48 hours in advance. There is a limit of one person per lane. Please bring your own towel.
Due to restrictions in capacity and operations, including paused services, no access for children under the age of 16, and reservation requirements for some areas, membership activation and billing for paid memberships may be deferred to later dates. Details for each membership type are listed below.
Community and Alumni Memberships (including adult dependents): Billing will resume August 3. For those who reactivate their membership immediately, the period July 17 - August 1 will be covered by credits from the March closure. For those who wish to delay reactivation, you may do so at any time, but the March credits will only apply if reactivation occurs by December 31, 2020. We will not be selling new community and alumni memberships at this time.
Faculty/Staff Memberships: Due to the fact that faculty/staff may be working remotely, payroll deduction and automatic use of the facility will not resume until the beginning of the fall quarter pay period, September 11. Faculty/staff who wish to use the Ray July 17 - September 10 may pay a $7 daily fee per visit or purchase a Summer Membership at the faculty/staff discounted rate of $50 for the rest of the summer. Summer memberships will not be prorated.
Student Memberships: All current full-time undergraduate students have a summer membership at The Ray and are able to access the facility beginning July 17. DePaul students who were enrolled in the spring or graduated in the spring, but are not currently enrolled as well as current part-time undergraduate, graduate, and Law School students may pay a $7 daily fee per visit or purchase a Summer Membership at the student discounted rate of $25 for the rest of the summer. Summer memberships will not be prorated. Students who graduated in the spring or summer and wish to continue their memberships with a recent alumni membership may do so.
We expect that patrons will adhere to the following in assisting us to ensure everyone's safety:
Daily locker and towel service will NOT be available until further notice. Patrons are asked to bring their own towels and may bring a small bag into activity areas to keep near their workout location.
Rental Lockers: Members who choose to pause their membership may continue to keep their lockers through the pause by paying the monthly locker rental fee or they may cancel their locker rental and remove their items from their locker. When they reactivate their membership, if that locker is still available, they may re-rent that particular locker, but we cannot guarantee locker placement.
Lockers ARE currently available for rent in three sizes. Check our Locker and Towel Services page for rental locker sizes and rates.
Reservations for pool access, court space (including recreational sports like racquetball, pickleball, volleyball, badminton, and basketball skills - no pickup games at this time) and personal fitness spaces may be made online or on the Ray App (instructions below):
