Shad Fitness Safety & Security

The safety of all participants who use Shad Hall is our highest priority. When using Shad, please consider your own health history, seek counsel from your health care provider, and use common sense.

Cleats and inline skates may not be worn anywhere in Shad Hall. See Proper Attire Policy below.

Your assistance in promoting safety in Shad is greatly appreciated.


Please help us maintain a secure environment by always showing your HBS photo ID upon arrival, securing your valuables in a day locker, keeping your day locker key with you at all times, and notifying the Shad staff if you see something out of the ordinary.

We cannot be held responsible for lost or stolen items. Please see HBS Security (login required) for campus lost & found.

There is a $20 replacement fee for lost ID's and a $10 replacement fee for lost day locker keys. ID cards are non-transferable.

Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in a loss of Shad privileges.

Proper Gym Attire

Proper attire is required for all participants using Shad Hall. Shirts and shoes should be worn in all public areas, with the exception of the locker room. Black soled or street shoes are not permitted on the tennis courts, the racquetball and squash courts, in the gymnasium, or the exercise studios.
