I would like to welcome you, our students, Faculty and Staff to the Campus Recreation Department. The Recreation Center is more than just a Fitness Center or an Aquatics Complex. It is a community that builds pride by developing a social atmosphere and stimulating participation in our campus and University life.  Your involvement in Campus Recreation can come in several areas: Intramural Tournaments, Kayak Days on the Bay, Group Exercise Programs, Paint Ball and Scuba Classes to just name a few of our activities… Campus Recreation offers more opportunities for students to become involved and it is a vital Panther Point for your campus. You can find the Recreation Center located on the Biscayne Bay Campus at WUC-160.

Student and Faculty and Staff involvement in Campus Recreation enhances one’s self-satisfaction and improves physical and mental health. Leadership opportunities arise through the many sports, activities, and programs offered. The Campus Recreation department opened our doors to a new 70,000 square foot complex, January 22, 2009. There is a state of the art Fitness Center, Group Exercise Studio, spacious locker rooms, newly renovated Aquatic Training Complex (which has an Olympic Training Pool and Competition Diving Well), a campus wide running track and basketball and tennis courts. The opportunities that you have to get involved are here for you to access. All of this is possible through student funding by our Student Government Association.

We invite you to get involved and be part of an ever growing component to the University community. The FIU Campus Recreation Department is your home for a lifetime, whether as a member of the student body, alumni or Faculty and Staff.

On behalf of all the Campus Recreation Staff – Welcome to RECREATION!
