Weinstein Center for Recreation

The Weinstein Center remains closed while the University of Richmond is in a modified operating schedule in which employees are asked to work remotely, to the fullest extent possible. When the Weinstein Center reopens it will include increased safety protocols for physical distancing and cleaning as set forth by the Governor and University of Richmond officials.

While gyms across the Commonwealth are permitted to reopen, the Weinstein Center is considered an institution of higher education and follows different timeline/protocol for opening in order to ensure the safety of the UR Community. 


Career Services

All in-person advising, including drop-ins, as well as on-campus recruiting and programs for Career Services are cancelled through the remainder of the semester per the University’s guidance regarding COVID-19. Virtual advising is available and we are currently planning potential alternative platforms for Career Services programs. Likewise, some companies will be conducting virtual recruiting activities coordinated through the university. If you have any specific questions, please contact careerservices@richmond.edu. Visit our COVID-19 Career Services webpage to get the latest updates for our office.

Students who are returning home and need mental health services are strongly encouraged to seek care locally.
