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.

UPDATE: The SRC pool is OPEN, but the spa is CLOSED until further notice.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: We are offering group tours of the Student Recreation Center. Contact to schedule your tour today!

ATTENTION: Beginning January 3, 2023 electric scooters and bicycles will not be permitted inside the SRC. Skateboards and non-electric scooters are allowed inside but must be placed in the provided skateboard racks or in a locker. Per TAPS policy 7.03: Wheeled devices must be parked in designated parking areas. Bicycle racks are provided outside the SRC for wheeled vehicles.


The health and well-being of the entire UC Riverside community is our top priority.

We will continue to provide resources and tools to help you maintain your health and well-being.

ATTENTION: In-person payment in the form of debit, credit and Apple Pay are accepted. The University does not accept cash.
