Recreational activity and the ability to balance academics with physical engagement is paramount to the success of our students. Through our programs, students strive to build communities and experiences outside of the classroom, control stress levels, and set healthy habits for the rest of their lives.

UW Recreation wants every student to be able to join or participate in a recreational class, program, or activity. We also have an unwavering commitment to access for all students, and believe that socio-economic barriers should not prevent any student from participation.

Thanks to the support of the Student Recreation Fund, each quarter we ensure every student has the opportunity to apply for Recreation financial awards to make meaningful participation a reality.
