Family Hours are offered as a way for members of the SMU community and their immediate  dependent minor children to enjoy recreational activities. A parent must have an active membership (SMU ID, or spouse membership). Children under 18 will be admitted only when accompanied by their parent, and Rec Center Minor ID is presented to the front desk.

Saturday Home Football Schedule

In order to show support for our student athletes and because of limited on

campus parking availability and excess traffic flow:

If the football game is a morning or afternoon game, the Dedman Center will be closed the entire day.

If the footbal game is in the evening (6pm or later) the Dedman Cener will close at Noon.

Inclement Weather Policy

In the event of inclement weather closures or unexpected, emergency University closure or cancellation of classes, the Dedman Center will modify operating hours to weekdays, 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, and weekends, 12:00 to 5:00 pm. The priority is the safety of patrons, students, and staff. All extra-curricular activities, such as intramurals, swim lessons, climbing wall, personal training, Group X, and massage, will be cancelled. Based on lifeguard availability, the swimming pool will attempt to open for noon time recreational swim only.

If conditions are expected to deteriorate, operating hours will be subject to change with minimal notice. In addition to University status notifications, you will be able to find updated Dedman related information via the Dedman Center website, Dedman Q&A email, and calling the Dedman Main Desk phone at 214-768-3374.

Please contact the individual program areas directly to reschedule appointments affected by the closure.

In the event of inclement weather, Intramural play information can be found by calling the Intramural Weather Hotline at 214-768-PLAY (7529).
