Welcome to BERA
Brookhaven Employees' Recreation Association

Temporary Suspension of BERA Programs
Brookhaven Lab is operating in essential mission critical operations mode, which limits on-site activities to only core, critical functions. Until further notice, QOL/BERA/Recreation programs are currently suspended. This includes the gymnasium, gym, pool, fitness classes, BERA Summer Break Camp, all BERA club activities, the BERA Store, Hospitality Coffee and Play Group, and the ASAP Lounge. ESOL Classes will continue online.

BNL Facilities are not open to the Public!

Notice: All Gym Weight Room memberships will now be sold through the BERA Store in 488 as of Monday, January 15th. The BERA Store is open Monday-Friday from 9am-3pm. Name, Life Number and email is required information, and check or exact cash is preferred.

Further information about the Club, free orientation, and hours can be found on the Gym Membership page.

BERA is administered by the Quality of Life/BERA/Recreation Office, located in Bldg. 400. BERA oversees the many clubs and organizations, and assists in the administration of the overall program and the use of available recreational facilities on-site. See a complete list of BERA Clubs.
