The WVU Student Recreation Center serves the entire WVU community. All WVU students have access to the facility and faculty/staff (and their immediate families) can register to become members. Our facility boasts 17,000 square feet of weight and fitness equipment, a 50-foot climbing wall, two swimming pools and outdoor fields. Members can also enjoy free group exercise classes, wellness programs and fitness testing. Personal Training packages are also available. Read below to learn more about the facility and amenities.

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!
