Boise State Campus Recreation: Play. Explore. Compete.

Engage your mind and body with Boise State Campus Recreation and build a stronger sense of belonging in your new university surroundings. The Student Recreation Center is a fun place to hang out, run around, and dive in.

As a full-time student, simply swipe your Boise State ID card to take advantage of our 104,000 square foot facility that includes three full gymnasiums, a 25-yard swimming pool, a climbing gym, racquetball courts, free weights, cardio and weight machines and more.

Maybe you like to work out on your own or with a personal trainer. We also offer variety of activities like group exercise, cardio and strength workouts.

There’s also plenty to do outside. From kayaking to skiing to hiking, we provide unique experiences. Hit the slopes for night skiing at Bogus Basin, only 16 miles from downtown Boise.  Strap on some snowshoes or click into some cross-country skis to tour the many trail systems in the Boise National Forest. Yoga-backpacking anyone? We also rent outdoor equipment.

Like team sports? Play for recreation or join a competitive league and compete with other Boise State students or students throughout the western United States.

At Campus Recreation, we’re all about recreational and leadership opportunities, social, mental, and physical well being and developing lifelong healthy habits. We bring people together, and that means the whole campus community: undergraduates, graduates, faculty and staff.

Take a break for fun and fitness. Play, explore and compete. We’re located on University Drive across from the Student Union. Call (208) 426-1131 or 426-5641. Check us out at
