Fitness Centers

Our campuses and fitness centers are currently closed to the general public at this time. Most classes will be held online through the Spring 2021 semester.

Each Dallas College campus has its own fitness center. Hours vary by location and may change each semester. Bring your student ID and a towel. You'll need appropriate swimming attire to use the college pools.

It is always advisable to check with your physician before beginning an exercise program. If you are over 40, smoke, have high blood pressure or other chronic disease or family history of heart disease, have had recent surgery or physical limitations, it is mandatory you consult a physician before enrolling.
