Facilities and Informal Recreation
All students, faculty, staff, and guests must check in at the RAC and UFCU Alumni Gym for recreation use, home athletic games and/or academic courses. Bring your SEU ID card and present to staff at either facility for access.
Recreation and Wellness provides cardio equipment, strength training facilities, basketball courts, racquetball courts, and a pool to ensure there’s always a way to be active on campus. All you need is your ID to enter our facilities and take advantage of a variety of fitness opportunities.

UFCU Alumni Gym
The UFCU Alumni Gym was renovated in Fall 2014. Housing one full basketball court, two volleyball courts, a fitness studio and Recreation & Wellness administration offices, the Alumni Gym serves as a hub for recreational activity. The Alumni Gym hosts most GroupX classes, Club Sport practices and meetings, Intramural Sports contests and open recreation opportunities for students.

The Practice Soccer Field is available (when possible) for Intramural Sports events, Club Sports practices and games, and special events upon request. Open recreation is not permitted on the field.
Recreation Field (Teresa Field)
Opened in Fall 2010, the Recreation Field is available at all times for Club Sports, open recreation, intramural sports, and special events. You can find rugby, lacrosse, ultimate frisbee, soccer, flag football or even boot camps on the Recreation Field.

The outdoor track circles the Lewis-Chen Family Field and is available for walking and jogging. The track measures at just over 1/4 mile in length.
Reserving Recreation and Wellness Facilities (On Campus Departments and ORGS)
To ensure the appropriate use of space, athletic and recreational programming needs are prioritized. When available, university departments, individuals and student organizations may request the use of various facilities. A fee may be associated with reservations to cover overhead costs and to ensure the security of the facility.
