Equipment Orientation

Learn about the exercise equipment in the Otto Recreation Center by signing up for an optional FREE Equipment Orientation. This is not required. You can book a reservation now without completing an equipment orientation.

If you are new to campus or new to exercise and unsure where to begin, we can walk with you through our facility and answer questions.


Learn about the ins and outs of the Otto Rec Center, how to make a reservation to use facilities, locker rooms, locker and equipment checkout, pool hours, available rental equipment, cardio equipment, selectorized weight machines, free weights, and more. This orientation is perfect for anyone who is new to the Otto Rec Center or those who want to expand their horizons and branch out from their usual workout spot or ask specific questions about equipment.

If you are interested in an optional FREE equipment orientation, an appointment is required. You can request an appointment by emailing
