Rec Center Closed Until Further Notice.


The Student Recreation Center closed effective 3/18/2020 at midnight. It will remain closed until further notice.

Membership information will be updated and communicated as soon as possible. All activities, programming and events are happening at alternative locations. For more information on locations and events, please go to the campus recreation calendar and/or our Rec Guide.

For more information on the university's response to COVID-19, please go to We apologize for this inconvenience, and encourage all to follow the university's policies.

Rec Center and Med Field lights have been shut off for the foreseeable future. During the response to the COVID-19 outbreak and in keeping with social distancing guidelines, please avoid gatherings of more than 10 people and maintain distance (approximately 6 feet) from others. Note: no bathroom facilities are available at this time. In case of emergency, contact UPD: 304-293-help.

Thank you for being a part of our active lifestyle and well-being community. As programs and events are closing at West Virginia University, we still encourage individuals to stay active and healthy. Please visit our Rec Guide regularly for updates, tips and other resources to help continue your active lifestyle at home!

Programming Impact

Campus Recreation is working hard to ensure that safety precautions are being implemented everywhere possible to keep our students, faculty and staff safe. While the Rec Center reopening is pending, programming and events will be taking place this semester, but most of the events/programming will be happening outside of the recreation center. Please pay attention to the calendar for specific events and follow our social media accounts for updates!

Please direct any questions to either or call us at (304) 293-7529.
