Canyonview East Locker Rooms Closed for Repair

We are in the process of investigating water leaks in the shower area and in the proactive planning stages for repairs & renovations. State industry standards for remediation are being addressed, and overseen by a third party mold certified consultant, under the advisement of UCSD Environmental Health Services. However, in the interest of an overabundance of safety, the locker rooms will be closed for normal use.

Please clear out your lockers by COB Wed, July 23, so we that can begin the process of getting the project started. The west locker rooms continue to be available.  Please check with the clerk regarding availability.

The necessary repairs in the shower room are being addressed as a top priority, and will be performed as soon as possible. An update will occur as soon as we have a more defined timeline to complete the repairs & renovations.

If any questions or concerns please contact FM Project Manager Ron Beane @ or at Sports Facilities.

Thank you for your patience.
