Product Description:

Whether you need to make a case for new, improved, or expanded facilities or just want to see how you stack up against other schools, you'll find the information you need in Space Planning Guidelines for Campus Recreational Sport Facilities.

The book offers the latest research on campus recreational sport facilities. The National Intramural-Recreational Sports Association (NIRSA) contracted the National Research Institute for College Recreational Sports & Wellness to survey experienced campus recreational sport administrators from nearly 200 U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities, asking not only for an inventory of existing facilities but also for opinions on whether those facilities were adequate in meeting the needs of their campuses. Those data were used in developing these space-per-student facility planning guidelines.

Space Planning Guidelines for Campus Recreational Sport Facilitiespresents the guidelines in a simple chart format so you can quickly and easily find the information that applies to your campus. All of the data are cross-referenced by facility type and total enrollment or school size. Guidelines are given for five facility types:
1. Total indoor space, including court and racket space and locker room space
2. Fitness facilities, including cardio equipment space, free-weight and strength equipment space, group exercise rooms, and multiuse spaces
3. Climbing and outdoor adventure facilities, including climbing walls and trip equipment storage space
4. Aquatic facilities
5. Outdoor sport facilities, including fields and courts

The book also provides a wealth of information that will help you make the most of the guidelines. You'll be given detailed instructions for applying the guidelines and a list of factors to consider when applying the guidelines so that you can be sure that the specific needs of your institution are being met. A companion Web page offers links to current field and court specifications and diagrams from numerous national associations so that you can plan for both indoor and outdoor sport spaces. You'll also find photos from some of the 2008 NIRSA Outstanding Sports Facilities Award winners. These facilities represent some of the best found on campuses today and can provide a starting point for your own facility projects.

Space Planning Guidelines for Campus Recreational Sport Facilitiesis the perfect resource for anyone beginning the process of planning for new or expanded facilities. Its comprehensive, research-based guidelines will help you ensure that you're adequately planning for the needs of your campus community.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
