Any individual who allows another person to use their Husky Card, as well as any individual that uses another person's Husky Card, to gain access to the Marino Recreation Center and the SquashBusters Center will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution (OSCCR). Access to all facilities will be suspended, to all involved parties, minimally until the following day.

Please notify the staff if you see something out of the ordinary.



Locks, towels and equipment may be checked out with your NU identification card. You are responsible for all equipment that you check-out and must reimburse Northeastern University for any lost or damaged equipment before your ID is returned. There is no overnight use of equipment or lockers. All locks and equipment must be returned by closing time. Items left in lockers overnight will be removed and a $10.00 storage fee assessed.
