Changes to Uptown Building Access


Beginning on Tuesday, February 12, our Uptown campus will implement new security procedures. You will notice the following changes to building access:

  • The front door on St. Charles Avenue entrance will be locked
  • The gates by the fitness center will be closed
  • The children's entrance on Leontine Street will be locked

All members will be required to scan their fingerprints or prox cards to gain entry to locked doors and gates. Guests may ring the bell for assistance.

Once in the building, you will still need to scan your JCC card to record your attendance, and guests will still be required to sign in and wear a visitor’s badge.

If you have not yet added your fingerprints to our system or received a prox card, you may do so at the front, children’s, or fitness desks during regular business hours.
