Building Entry

Prior to facility use, all students must fill out a waiver available via this link.

The waiver must be completed and submitted via the link above at least three business days prior to entrance to the facility. Once the waiver is submitted, your college-issued I.D. will be activated to allow access to Roberts Pavilion during the Preview Weekend operating hours.
