The Student Recreation Center at Western Michigan University houses University Recreation offices and programs. We offer open recreation, personal training, sport leagues and group exercise, utilizing equipment and facilities to promote health and well being. Programs focus on stress reduction, weight loss, increased flexibility and strength, friendly competition and social interaction.


Spring employment open call meeting
Students interested in applying for a job with University Recreation for the spring semester must attend our upcoming open call meeting. The meeting is scheduled for Sunday, November 10 at 8 p.m. in rooms 3012 and 3013 of the SRC. For more information, contact Jordan Olson. The open call meeting will discuss the application process, timeline, and general expectations of student employees.

Family activities policy change
In order to better serve our students and SRC members, we have updated our family activities policy to be more inclusive of our users needs. Beginning this fall, all SRC operational hours will be considered family hours instead of just Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For more details, visit our family activities policy page.

eSports offered for club and intramurals
We will be offering Overwatch, League of Legends, CS: GO, and Fortnite for clubs. Clubs will be PC and Intramurals will utilize both PC & Console. We will have tryouts for these and they are all virtual. For more information, visit the eSports page.

Student Recreation Center mobile app
The rec center mobile app is available for both IOS and Android operating systems. Search your app store for "WMU REC" or "WMU SRC" to stay up to date on the rec center, hours, contact information, fitness class schedules and more.
