X.U.’s O’Connor Sports Center for general public, too

Xavier University’s O'Connor Sports Center is located in Evanston along Victory Parkway between the soccer and baseball fields. Memberships are available to faculty, staff, alumni and community members. It is a family-friendly location to schedule family get-togethers, parties or even your child’s swim party.

The O'Connor Sports Center reopened this morning at 5:45 a.m. and will close at 8:00 p.m. The Center's regular hours resume Tuesday, August 23: Monday-Thursday, 5:45 a.m.-11:00 p.m.; Friday, 5:45 a.m.-7:00 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.

All Xavier students registered for classes have access to the O'Connor Sports Center free of charge by presenting their valid All Card as they enter the facility. But membership is also open to the general public. Rates are $425 per year for a single membership or $500 per year for a family membership and are discounted for Xavier alumni and senior citizens. As O’Connor is a primarily student facility, it is subject to closings and schedules that revolve around the University calendar. Personal trainers and group classes like yoga, Zumba, spinning, Total Body Conditioning, and water aerobics are available.

O’Connor features a six-lane, 25-meter indoor pool, three-court gymnasium, Hammer Strength room, Nautilus equipment, cardiovascular room, two racquetball/ handball courts and shower/locker rooms. Recreational Sports Department facilities are available for rental by student groups, members and outside groups.
