Recreation and Wellness

Recreation and Wellness

No one said you can’t have fun while earning your degree and preparing for your career – it’s half the college experience! At the USF Sarasota-Manatee campus, you can work out in our fitness center, play basketball or soccer at our on campus court, compete in the annual students vs. faculty/staff basketball game, or slow things down with a goat yoga class.

Each of our campuses has dedicated spaces, programming, and events to help you stay healthy. Those facilities and services will look a bit different across the three campuses.  Services and equipment you find on one may not be available on another. Students have access to all facilities across the three campuses. Faculty and staff are managed differently in each location, so being a member of one might not guarantee access to another.  

Find out more information about the facilities, programs, and membership requirements on the campuses of St. Petersburg and Tampa.
