Campus Recreation

Make friends, and get that Jaguar blood pumping

It’s time to feel invigorated. Campus recreation at IUPUI is geared toward giving your body, mind, spirit, and social life the refresh they’ve been craving.

Your campus recreation fee—only $15 each semester—gives you access to IUPUI’s recreational facilities, intramural sports, and group fitness classes.


If you’re a fitness buff, you’ll feel right at home at the Fitness Center, located in the Campus Center beneath Barnes & Noble. The 10,000-square-foot facility, which opened in March 2018, has everything you need for your workout, including cardio equipment, weight machines, free weights, studios for group fitness classes, and an MX4 studio.

For those who prefer an aquatic workout, the IU Natatorium, where U.S. Olympian Michael Phelps has competed, is the perfect place to swim a few laps. If team sports are more your style, drop by the Jungle, located on the first floor of the School of Physical Education and Tourism Management, for a pick-up game of basketball or indoor soccer in the gymnasium.

And when you’re ready for some fresh air, head over to the Campus Recreation Outdoor Facility (CROF) at Lockefield Green, where you’ll find two sand volleyball courts, three outdoor basketball courts, and a 3,200-square-foot green space.

Hey, batter batter batter. Some of us like to watch sports. Some of us like to play them. That’s where IUPUI intramural sports come in. Softball, ultimate Frisbee, flag football, dodgeball, soccer, and basketball: be a team captain or a team player. When it comes to bringing home a victory, every player matters.

Group fitness

These aren’t your typical group fitness classes. Get ready to build muscle, momentum, and—more importantly—a new community of health-minded friends who are ready to sweat it out together. Kettlebell training, Pilates, yoga, obstacle course challenge training, and Zumba are just a sampling of the classes available to you with your recreation fee.
