What is Campus Recreation?

We are a department that provides recreational facilities, programs, services, and job opportunities to the UMW community.


We are proud to offer a variety of ways for everyone in the UMW community to work, play, and thrive. Our wide range of offerings allow users to develop lifelong healthy habits and create individualized tool-kits for wellness.


Why do we need your support?

Nearly 70% of UMW students participate in a Campus Recreation club, activity, or program to proactively manage stress, build social connections, and improve their physical and mental well-being.


Research shows that participating in enjoyable physical activity promotes academic success, increases productivity, and improves overall mental health, which is why we do what we do. Your contributions will help the Department of Campus Recreation continue to serve students, faculty, staff, and alumni in numerous ways.


How will your gift help?

With your help, we can continue to improve the quality of the Campus Rec experience for existing users and increase the amount of students we engage. Your gifts will contribute to the continuation of:

  • safe recreational facilities like the Fitness Center, Goolrick pool, and turf field;
  • updated strength, cardio, flexibility, and sports equipment; and
  • diverse programming like sport clubs, fitness classes, outdoor trips, recreational sports, personal training, swim lessons, and wellness activities.
