Rec It


Welcome to UC Riverside Recreation

The UC Riverside Recreation department offers members of the Highlander community a healthy option to living active and meaningful lives while working on achieving their degrees. All UCR students are automatically members of the Student Recreation Center (SRC), a 155,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility for exercise, sports activities, events and general recreational use.


The health and well-being of the entire UC Riverside community is our top priority. As we begin to adapt our daily infrastructure to cope with the challenges brought on by this world crisis, we will continue to provide resources and tools to help you maintain your health and wellness.
