Intramural Sports

You can sign up to play various sports: soccer, basketball, badminton, tennis, etc. They are either free or have a small charge between $5-$30 for the semester to register a team. You can create your own team or be placed on a team. This is a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

Weight Rooms and Cardio Gyms

The SRSC has one large strength gym and a large cardio gym. Weekly exercise classes, such as Zumba, are also offered. The WIC has a smaller weight room and cardio set up, but it usually less populated than the SRSC. The WIC has numerous basketball courts as well as a full indoor track.


- Lockers can be rented at both facilities for an entire semester for ~$20.

- As long as you are enrolled in 6 or more credits, the gym fees are included in your student fees. If you are not enrolled, the gym fee is ~$70 per term.
