As we look forward to moving towards the Orange Tier Status of both the college and Contra Costa County, additional opportunities for facility use will be available along with the increased capacity limit of 25% in the Joseph L. Alioto Recreation Center.

In Orange Tier, off-campus resident students will have access to the Joseph L. Alioto Recreation Center and memberships opportunities are available for residential Brothers and residential employees. 

The consideration of extending memberships to all SMC employees will be determined when the user trends of our SMC students are observed and evaluated. Our priority will be to assure student access is maintained prior to extending additional membership opportunities.

We have established an effective protocol that has provided a clean and safe environment for our current users and we look forward to extending the facility amenities to the rest of our community.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
