Welcome to Campus Recreation

Attention Health and Recreation Center Members - New Hours

As Illinois continues to relax restrictions, the Foglia Foundation Health and Recreation Center (a partnership between Harper College, Northwest Community Healthcare and Palatine Park District) has begun a phased reopening plan. Our phased plan includes limited capacities, and modified hours. This will provide us time to monitor the effectiveness of our procedures and make necessary adjustments. We may need to adapt our plans as the situation evolves to help protect the community’s health and safety. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Learn more about Harper’s COVID-19 response on our advisory page. Connect with Us - Health and Recreation Center Account Portal and App
