Cal Poly Recreation Center

Explore, excel, restore.

The Recreation Center is Cal Poly’s destination for fitness, recreation, relaxation, and wellness. Our state-of-the-art facility features everything you need for your workout, leisure, or recreational activity.

About the Recreation Center

In response to COVID-19, the California State University (CSU), has suspended all recreation center operations within the CSU system including programs and services at the Cal Poly Recreation Center. Additional information regarding membership refunds or extensions will be forthcoming from Membership Services.

The Recreation Center is prepared to serve as an alternate care site in the event that local hospitals have more patients than they can treat and house safely.  For more information, visit



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.
