Supplies? Repairs?

Cleaning spray for the machines and the paper towels are provided by UW Tower Operations.  The cleaning solution used is called Lemo-quat and is the same solution used at the IMA for cleaning fitness equipment.   If you notice that supplies are running low, please contact us at 206-685-5648 or by emailing uwtower@uw.edu

If a machine seems to be malfunctioning or out of order, please contact us immediately so we can mark it out of service and request a repair from our maintenance provider.

Can I donate/add equipment?

If you have equipment you would like to donate to the Fitness Center, please email us at uwtower@uw.edu to find out if it is something that we are allowed to have.  Any equipment left in the Fitness Center without approval, may be removed without notice.

What do I do in an emergency?

UW Tower's Fitness Center is not staffed, so we have provided an emergency phone that calls directly to Security if there is a medical emergency.

The room is equipped with a fire extinguisher.

In the case of a building wide emergency; visual and audio alarms will sound.  Please evacuate to the Mail Center area and follow the Evacuation Warden's instructions.
