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.
The lap pool and outdoor exercise areas on the pool deck are currently open at partial capacity. Participants must make a reservation to enter the facility. Indoor areas will not reopen at this time. The Alternate Care Site (ACS) at the Recreation Center is currently on standby. In April 2020, the Cal Poly Recreation Center was prepared to serve as an Alternate Care Site in the event that local hospitals have exceeded the amount of patients that can be treated and housed safely.

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.
Not only did the building grow in size, but so did ASI’s commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive fitness and wellness locale for participants to recreate, relax, and socialize. Visit the state-of-the-art Recreation Center today to start your experience.

In order to keep communities safe, our local energy company may need to turn off power during extreme weather or wildfire conditions. This is called a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS). To learn more about the response from ASI managed facilities and programs, visit the informational page here.
