New Student Recreation Center

New Student Recreation Center (Opening: Fall 2016)

The Department of Campus Recreation is committed to UNC Greensboro’s vision of making a difference in the lives of our students and campus community. It is our belief that in everything we do, WE STRENGTHEN SPARTANS. In order to meet the unique and diverse needs of our students and members, Campus Recreation has evolved into a place where you can reflect deeper, play harder, grow stronger, explore farther, accomplish more, and enjoy life. But this was only the beginning. Over the next several months, we will redefine the recreation experience at UNC Greensboro. Welcome to the NEW STUDENT RECREATION CENTER.
