Informal Recreation Programs

Informal Recreation programs include many activities commonly associated with municipal recreation centers and fitness clubs. These might include weight facilities, aerobic equipment such as treadmills, stair machines and stationary bikes, racquetball, volleyball, basketball, and swimming. Students enrolled at any of the three institutions are welcome to drop in during facilities hours and participate in whatever areas they choose. Because students have paid the student fee, there is no additional charge for Drop-in activities. Faculty, staff, alumni, guests, UCD Health Sciences Center students and significant others, are permitted to participate with the purchase of a semester membership or daily guest fee.
