Campus Recreation & Wellness Promotion

Campus Recreation & Wellness Promotion aims to promote lifelong wellness through holistic education and quality recreation programs, services and facilities that enhance the University experience through participation and leadership. The programs and facilities offered by Campus Recreation & Wellness Promotion are available to all students and faculty/staff (with memberships).

Facility ‑ The 232,500 sq. ft. University Recreation Center provides a variety of recreational opportunities.  Activities include swimming, basketball, volleyball, badminton, weightlifting, an indoor track for walking and jogging, cardiovascular training equipment, a games area, a climbing wall, computer access, and food service.

Wellness Education – Research and professional experience at TCU verify the correlation between a student’s good health, healthy lifestyle, and academic and personal success. Therefore, through Wellness Education we empower a university-wide culture of wellness for all students. Wellness Education offers primary prevention programming through collaboration with the university community. Multiple programs and services provided include suicide prevention training, sleep hygiene instruction, meditation, stress management workshops, healthy relationship education, and more. A group of peer educators work to aid in the delivery of all information to the students. Any student organization can request a specific program to be delivered to their students.

Aquatics – In addition to recreational swimming, the Aquatics Program offers instructional and fitness activities in the water. There are three pools in the University Recreation Center: 25-yard lap pool, 22 ft. deep diving well and an outdoor leisure pool.

Intramurals ‑ Structured, competitive, and recreational sporting events are scheduled throughout the academic year. Activities involve team sports, individual or dual events, and special events.  Only currently enrolled TCU students and faculty/staff may participate in the Intramural Sports Program.

Sport Clubs ‑ The Sport Club program is designed to serve individual interests in different sport and recreational activities. Membership is open to all students and the club must be a recognized student organization. These interests can be competitive, recreational, or instructional in nature, as clubs may represent TCU in intercollegiate competition or conduct intra-club activities such as practice, instruction, social activities, and tournament play.

Fitness Programs – Group fitness classes are designed for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Individualized personal training and equipment orientations allow individuals a more personal experience toward their strength and conditioning goals. Educational sessions are also offered to help members achieve healthy, active lifestyles.

Outdoor Programs –Outdoor Programs are comprised of three main program areas: the Adventure Trip Program (ATP), Climbing Wall and Outdoor Equipment Rental. We are dedicated to providing positive outdoor education, recreation and adventure experiences to the TCU community. Students participate in and experience activities that cause them to reflect and learn about their relationship to others as well as their own abilities and limitations.

Memberships – All students are considered members and have access to the University Recreation Center.  Spouses and/or dependents of current students are also eligible to purchase memberships.
