Indoor Track

The track is 1/10 of a mile with sloped corners to assist runners as they make turns. A large digital clock is visible around the track and lap counters can be checked out for free at our Welcome Desk. The track direction alternates daily. Walkers are asked to stay on the inside lanes and runners should use the outside lanes. Signage is located on track with all track policies.

Racquetball Courts

Two racquetball courts are available for recreational use. Each court has glass back walls so action can be viewed from both the first and second floor of the CRC. All racquetball participants must wear eye protection. We have wallyball equipment available for checkout at our welcome desk that can be used inside either of our racquetball courts.

Squash Court

The CRC has one squash court that will be repurposed for additional fitness space starting in the spring semester of 2024. Functional fitness equipment, small weights, and stretch mats will be added to this space to create a more private fitness experience and support the high demand for more student fitness space inside the CRC.
