Weather Notice - HLS Closure
The HLS Facility and the Aquatic Center will be closed on Monday (9/14), Tuesday (9/15), Wednesday (9/16) and Thursday morning (9/17) due to Tropical Storm Sally. We are scheduled to re-open on Thursday at noon. Please stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you later this week.
The University of West Florida’s Health, Leisure, & Sports (HLS) Facility has been declared a Red Cross Emergency Shelter. It will be the first shelter opened in many emergency situations. In the event that circumstances warrant, the HLS Facility will close to the public and will be under the control of the Red Cross. Should this occur, HLS Facility patrons will be notified through @UWF, WUWF 88.1, this website, and signs throughout the facility.
The university is pleased to offer this service to our community. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for your support and patronage.
