University Recreation

The University Recreation Department is dedicated to the health and wellness of Detroit Mercy students and employees.

In collaboration with the University community, University Recreation offers an exemplary facility, programs and services that inspire participation and engagement.

Our recreational opportunities promote health, inspire well-being, enhance academic success and foster community. The student-centered environment provides an outlet for competition, exploration, fitness, play and social interaction.

Students can get active with intramural sports, club sports, URec Adventure Series, outdoor recreation, group activities, or regular daily exercise.

If you want to get in shape, stay fit or just have a good time, University Recreation has a program for you.
