A Commitment to being Sustainable

We are also committed to being as “green” as we can, incorporating eco-friendly products and practices into our operations. Our facility is LEED-certified and we’ve implemented a number of environmentally-friendly initiatives, including our recycling program; water-refilling stations; low-flow capacity shower heads, toilets, and urinals; peroxide-based cleaning products; low-energy LED lighting and reflective glass for energy conservation; and the use of recycled materials throughout the facility. Reducing our carbon footprint helps create a better world, a better facility, and ultimately, a better you.

About University Recreation & Wellbeing

In addition to being a Cleveland-area small business, we also comprise a robust university department – University Recreation and Wellbeing. As stewards of Cleveland State University, we are dedicated to enhancing the wellbeing and campus experience of the CSU community, serving as an exceptional campus partner, and contributing to CSU’s growth and advancement. Through a foundational and ambitious collection of goals and objectives informed by the CSU 2.0 initiative, our department is working to establish ourselves as a leading comprehensive wellness brand, elevate our status as a support service for students and the CSU community, and emerge as both an “anchor” and “beacon” department for the university.
