General Facility Information
Campus Recreational Services offers a wide array of activities and classes that take place indoors and outdoors both on and off campus. Some are purely recreational, while others are very competitive. Our program offices are all located at the Rec Center in the East Gym.
Depending on the time of year and weather we service approximately 1500-2000 people per day through the programs we offer. One of our goals is to provide healthy opportunities to students outside of the classroom and complement the experiences they receive elsewhere in campus life. With all of the different opportunities offered, we believe we have something for everyone and every lifestyle.

Indoor walking (limited schedule)
Campus Recreation department offices are located in the Rec Center, East Gym 110. Core office hours are 8:30am-5pm during fall and spring semesters, 8am-4pm during summer semesters. Hours may vary due to University activities, holidays and vacations.
The Recreation Fee is the foundation for funding the recreation programs. It pays for many of the professional staff salaries, as well as student staff salaries and program costs for Open Recreation, Outdoor Pursuits and building operations. It also supports program operational costs to run the overall Campus Recreational Services department. Undergraduate and Graduate students pay this fee as a part of their Comprehensive Fee each semester, which is incorporated on their tuition bill. Some facets of the programs may require memberships or additional fees due to the nature and expense of the activity.
All student, faculty and staff are encouraged to take part in all activities to the extent of their personal interest and fitness ability. Certain risks of injury are inherent to participation in any fitness or physical activity. Types and extent of injuries may be minor or serious and may result from ones own actions, the actions of others or a combination of both. In a voluntary program, participants are required to assume responsibility for their own well-being and safety. You are responsible for determining if you should start or continue any activity. Consult the Decker Student Health Services Center or your physician on matters regarding your personal health.
