COVID-19 Information

The Finley Recreation Center is currently open seven days a week: Monday–Friday 6 a.m.-7:30 p.m.; Saturday 12 p.m.–5:30 p.m.; and Sunday 8 a.m.–5:30 p.m.

The UNE community is welcome to utilize the facility during all operating hours. Everyone must use their UNE ID card to enter the facility. Those without an ID card will not be allowed into the facility. Once inside, a staff member will ask a series of COVID-screening health questions and will take your temperature with a forehead infrared thermometer.

The 11,000-foot gym space in the center has been set up with 10'x10' exercise pods. Choose the pod you wish to use, and simply put the yellow cone over the green cone so that the Finley staff know the pod is being used and will need to be sanitized once your workout is complete.

We are currently working on relining one pickle ball court and hope to have it ready by December 3.

In addition, a new table tennis (one-on-one only) table will be available on the 2nd level of Finley by December 3.

Please note that locker rooms are closed, and community memberships are discontinued until further notice. 

If you require a refund or have questions, please email Judy Vezina at We will honor your existing membership by delaying the expiration date once the state of Maine and University administrators allow for an increase in the number of people permitted to gather indoors.

We welcome you to like/follow Finley on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter for online tutorials, videos, information, and wellness tips to help you stay healthy and reduce your stress during this uncertain time.
