Student-Centered Resources, Facilities, and Activities
The Wright State University Office of Campus Recreation is located in the Student Union, the heart of campus, and provides exceptional facilities and programs to promote the total health and well-being of each member of the university community. Professional staff work to meet the diverse needs of students, faculty, and university employees alike through activities and programs that promote healthy lifestyles, positive relationships, productive leadership, fair play, and of course, fun.
Recreational facilities in the Student Union complex consist of a fitness center, gymnasium, swimming pool, seven squash and racquetball courts, a spinning room, billiards room, game arcade, and outdoor playing fields. Students also have access to a second gymnasium, weight room, indoor running track, and outdoor tennis courts located just down the street at the Ervin J. Nutter Center.
Campus Recreation offers programming for everyone-from wheelchair basketball to flag football, kickboxing to rugby.
Students are encouraged to participate in the more than 20 intramural leagues, 22 sports clubs and 25 special events and tournaments offered annually. For the outdoor enthusiast, Campus Recreation offers several camping trips, a ski trip, horseback riding, skydiving, inline skating, and more. Students may take advantage of a wide offering of noncredit fitness instruction from traditional cardiovascular workouts such as step, dance or water aerobics; spinning; and kickboxing; to more nontraditional holistic offerings in meditation and tai chi.
Finally, a variety of inclusive adapted programs is available, including aquatics, fitness, and wheelchair sports.
The university offers a broad program of both intercollegiate and intramural sports for men and women. Wright State's student-athletes compete in NCAA Division I and the Horizon League Conference. Men's and women's sports opportunities include basketball, cross country, soccer, swimming, and tennis. In addition, the university offers baseball and golf for men, along with softball and volleyball for women. Under certain NCAA rules, graduate students may be eligible to compete. All students are admitted free to on-campus Wright State athletic events.
