The ARC is open, but patrons must now submit an online reservation to access all spaces, including cardio and weight areas. Read more about the guidelines and steps to submit an online reservation below.

Reservations Required

As a result of the State of Illinois’ Tier 3 Mitigations, starting Monday, November 30, all patrons must make an online reservation to access all spaces in the ARC, including cardio and weight areas. Patrons who come to the ARC without a reservation should go to the Member Services desk check availability. Only if capacity allows, Member Services can make a reservation for the patron to use a space immediately. However, we highly recommended all patrons make an online reservation in advance to guarantee access to their desired areas in the ARC.

Access to the ARC requires an active membership and verification of their Building Access via the Safer Illinois app before being allowed to enter.

How to Make a Reservation

To make an online reservation, follow the steps below.

  1. Visit the Online Reservation Portal and login with your username and password.
