Aquatics and Safety


We invite you to experience our state-of-the-art, 25-yard pool and hop into our 10-person spa for a quick soak. Lap swim, open rec swim, women-only swim and special events are available to members for free. Adult swim clinics, youth swim lessons, CPR/AED courses, first aid courses and lifeguard certification courses are available at a cost.

Fitness and Health Promotion

Get fit and stay healthy with over 50 complimentary drop-in Group X fitness classes, an affordable personal training program, an indoor track and nearly 200 pieces of weightlifting and cardio equipment. Health promotion engages the entire campus community with annual events like Walktober and the Nourish Wellness Fair.

Inclusive Rec

Campus Rec celebrates diversity, inclusiveness, and authenticity in all our programs. Our Inclusive Rec helps create a community that welcomes everyone by offering accessible spaces, programs and equipment, including outdoor trips, adaptive climbing and swimming, wheelchair sports, goalball, open inclusive rec time and youth events for the entire PSU community.


Intramural leagues offer team and singles competitions in a variety of sports. Gather a group of friends or sign up as a free agent -- all are welcome to participate. This is a great opportunity to get involved on campus, make new friends and exercise in a safe, fun environment.

Outdoor Program

The Outdoor Program helps students experience the beautiful Pacific Northwest. We offer seasonal single- and multi-day trips, an equipment rental center with outdoor gear at affordable rates, and outdoor workshops and certification courses. The Outdoor Program also manages the 32-foot climbing wall located inside the Rec Center. Members are invited to participate in climbing classes, events and competitions.

Rec Clubs

Rec Clubs are student-led and provide opportunities for recreation and intercollegiate competition between students of all skill levels. Don’t see a sport you’re looking for? You can start a Rec Club of your own. Our 30+ Rec Clubs are community oriented, safe, sustainable, diverse, accessible and educational.
