Being a college student can sometimes be demanding, so it's important to find something to do, to recharge your batteries. The Division of Student Life has options and activities all over campus—and beyond!
Student Recreation Center (SRC)
Located near the residence halls in the middle of campus, the Student Recreation Center provides a convenient place for you to come run a few laps after class, strengthen your core in a Group X fitness class, climb the rock wall, or even learn to play tennis. If none of those activities interest you, check out all the other things the Rec Center has to offer on the P.E. and Recreation website.
Renovated and Expanded
Like to swim? Like to climb on a boulder wall? Or are you into the barbell set? The Student Recreation Center recently expanded and now includes an extensive aquatics center, huge climbing wall and extensive weight areas. The 150,000 square feet of new and renovated space has lots of room for the weight and cardio equipment areas. Be sure to check out the variety of classes and other cool new stuff.
Intramural and Club Sports
If you’re the kind of person who prefers their recreation a little more organized, check out Club Sports or Intramural Sports. Club Sports is an EMU program where you can play sports ranging from disc golf to water polo. Some of these teams require tryouts, and many involve travel to competitions against other schools. Intramural Sports is run through the P.E. & Recreation department. Sign up for a sport with a team of friends and play against other UO students to win a coveted “Intramural Champions” t-shirt.
Visiting the Outdoor Program should be on every Duck’s to-do list, especially if you’re the outdoor adventure type. Go on a pre-planned trip or get help planning your own. You can even rent the gear! The Outdoor Program is also home to the UO Bike Program, where you can borrow bikes and learn basic bike maintenance.
