All eligible Wellesley College employees, their spouses/partners, and children under 26 years of age are permitted to use the Keohane Sports Center (KSC) free of charge. This policy reflects the College’s commitment to employee well-being and the PERA Department’s commitment to providing additional opportunities for on-campus physical activity.

Consistent with the PERA Department’s mission and “students first” priority, facility availability will be largely determined by physical education classes, athletic practices and competitions, and recreational programming.  Building hours of operation and facility schedules are posted on the Facilities page and updated regularly. Daily facility accessibility is also available by calling the Sports Center Hotline at x2018.
