About the Recreation Center

25 Years of Excellence

For over 25 years, the Cal Poly Recreation Center has provided students and the campus community with a welcoming space for fitness and recreation.

In 2008, Cal Poly students voted to increase their student fees to allow for the expansion and renovation of the Recreation Center. The expanded facility reopened in 2012 following a student referendum for a remodeled facility with additional recreational space.
