A message from Facilities, Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management, University of Manitoba:

The sauna will remain closed until January at the earliest. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will keep everyone updated through this thread.

Original message, Sept. 2019

Due to repairs, the Active Living Centre and Frank Kennedy Centre men’s locker room sauna is closed until further notice.

During a routine round of minor repair and maintenance, it was discovered a majority of the wall and insulation behind the sauna needed to be repaired due to deterioration.

We are working with Physical Plant to investigate our best repair and replacement options, but a lengthy closure will likely be needed to address this.

We apologize for the inconvenience, as we know how integral the sauna is to your overall experience in our facility. We will keep everyone updated as progress on this matter develops.
