SLAC’s Arrillaga Recreation Center opens today

The Arrillaga Recreation Center at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory will open today for SLAC and Department of Energy employees and visiting scientists. The 17,600-square-foot facility and 7.5-acre recreation grounds will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and managed by Stanford’s Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday. However, for the first week the center is open, hours will be limited to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. Normal 24/7 operations and business hours will begin Monday, July 30.

SLAC badges will serve as card keys to access the center. Other people with business on the SLAC site, such as visiting researchers, Stanford Guest House lodgers and service contractors, can use the center for $5 per day. Card keys can be purchased from recreation center staff during business hours.

Stanford faculty, staff and students without business on the SLAC campus can use the center only if they are enrolled in a class that’s being offered at SLAC through the Health Improvement Program (HIP) .

The Arrillaga Recreation Center at SLAC is one of several Stanford sports facilities that bear the name of alumnus and real estate developer JOHN ARRILLAGA and his family.
