Department of Campus Recreation


The Gillett Wellness Center is EXCITED to announce that we re-opened with a reduced schedule. Our priority remains to safeguard the health, safety and well-being of our guests and members (which includes BSU students, faculty/staff and Bemidji area community members). The pool, locker rooms and showers will remain closed at this time so please come prepared.  We are currently open Mondays through Fridays from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

To mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19 transmission, we are requiring face masks/coverings to be worn at all times while inside the Wellness Center.

We thank you, in advance, for cooperating with these enhanced safety measures.
