UAB University Recreation (URec) provides fitness, wellness, and recreational opportunities for the UAB community and beyond. URec makes this possible by offering a variety of fun programs and quality services within state-of-the-art facilities.

Our main facility, the Campus Recreation Center, has been serving to the UAB community since May 1, 2005. The Campus Recreation Center gives UAB Students and URec members the opportunity to access a large aquatic center, fitness center, studio space, indoor 36-foot high climbing wall, four gym courts, multipurpose gym, four racquetball courts, squash court, and indoor track. We also offer over 50 Group Exercise classes each week, massage therapy, fitness and health assessments, personal training and so much more. All of this is located in the heart of UAB’s campus.

We would like to proudly share that the Campus Recreation Center has been named 18th Most Amazing Campus Student Recreation Centers by the Best College Reviews. Everything we do at UAB University Recreation is designed to improve the quality of life for the UAB community and we would like to express our appreciation for UAB Students, URec Members, and the rest of the UAB community for helping us achieve that.
