Update on Hot Water Outage at the Nicholas Recreation Center

At the Nicholas Recreation Center (the Nick), we have been experiencing issues with a broken valve on the water heater. The availability for hot water in the locker room showers has been intermittent.

Campus’ Facility Planning & Management team (FP&M) has ordered a replacement part that should remedy this issue and they are scheduled to work on this during our building maintenance week, August 12 through August 20.

This has been an ongoing issue and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused to our members. While we cannot provide an exact timeline on when the hot water issue will be fully fixed, know that our facilities team is actively working to resolve it as soon as possible. We will do our best to provide updates as we receive them and thank you for understanding.

During the maintenance closure at the Nick, the Bakke Recreation & Wellbeing Center and Nielsen Tennis Stadium will be open to our members. For any questions or concerns, please reach out to Chad Schultz, our Associate Director of Facility Services at chad.schultz@wisc.edu.
