Recreation and Wellness Center
The UCF Recreation and Wellness Center is more than a place—it’s the place to be. It’s a positive environment for getting fit and staying healthy, as well as a way to meet new friends and explore a variety of athletic offerings. UCF is nationally recognized for our comprehensive year-round programming in Aquatics, Adaptive and Inclusive Recreation, Fitness, Intramural Sports, Outdoor Adventure and Sport Clubs. We value diversity at the RWC and are proud to offer something for everyone and every skill level.
Research proves that the more you scale a rock climbing tower, compete in Intramural Sports, run on a treadmill or lift weights, the better you do in school. Your brain needs a break, so do your entire body a favor by taking advantage of our 13 facilities and six award-winning programs.
At the RWC, we believe in accessibility for everybody and have set national trends in inclusive programming for students with disabilities. Our programs, employment and innovative leadership opportunities help our Knights develop the necessary skills to become collaborative students today and effective professionals in the future.
Our facilities are open to all UCF students for most of the year. A dedicated and enthusiastic staff of professionals and students is committed to teaching you the benefits of a good workout and helping you establish healthy habits while in college. So if you’re looking for a great place to play, you’ve found it in the Recreation and Wellness Center.
