Run laps on the elevated 1/8-mile indoor track, swim in our 8-lane pool, or join a group fitness class in one of the three group fitness studios. Shoot hoops on one of the six courts, or ascend the face of the climbing wall. Lift in the free weight area, or get your blood pumping on one of the 60 cardio machines available.

Rock Wall
A custom A.R.T. Wall by Nicros that is designed to look like a real rock face, the UD Rock Wall is located in the middle of Campus Recreation’s RecPlex on the ground floor. It is free for Campus Recreation members, and climbing shoes and harnesses are available for usage at no charge through Equipment Issuance.
Stuart Field

Stuart Field features 5.6 acres of high-use, high-performance, multi-purpose fields that play and feel like natural grass. Surrounding the perimeter of the field is a .385-mile walking/running path. All UD students have access to Stuart Field.

Outdoor Engagement Center
Located at 438 Stonemill Rd, Campus Recreation’s Outdoor Engagement Center (OEC) provides the University of Dayton and the surrounding community with opportunities and resources to engage the natural world in a sustained, collaborative, and meaningful way.
Old River Park
**Old River Park is not currently available for reservation, usage, or programming. Any new requests at this time will be denied. Humanities Plaza, Heritage Center, the LTC Patio, and KU Mall are recommended options to pursue for your outdoor gatherings. Please check back regarding future use.**
