Fitness and Recreation

Shoot some hoops. Run for miles. Dance your heart out. At the Driscoll Fitness Center, you can clear your head, meet up with friends, or catch some fresh air. Whatever you need to keep yourself creating.

Driscoll Fitness Center

Our on-campus fitness center is about to become your favourite place to hang out. Whether you want to play a game of foosball or shoot some hoops, the gym is a social hub on the campus. We even have free fitness classes after hours, and intramural sports clubs every night of the week – Dodgeball has been particularly popular the past few semesters! Every week, you’ll also find soccer, basketball, volleyball, ultimate Frisbee, and more.

Inside the DFC:

  • Gym with indoor track
  • Weight room
  • Multi-purpose cardio room
  • Dance studio
  • Squash/racquetball courts
  • Basketball court
  • Outdoor tennis courts
  • Locker rooms
  • Outdoor recreational and athletic equipment rentals
  • Outdoor volleyball courts
  • Fitness classes, such as Zumba, Yoga, Bollywood Dance, Nia, Spin Cycling, Pilates, and more

The lobby of the DFC is also a place to hang out – so we’ve made sure that it’s stocked with vending machines, comfortable seating, and good tunes. If you’re looking for a way to pass the time, we have a few options:

  • Large-screen TV and free movies
  • Wii Fit
  • Foosball
  • Table tennis

New trips are always being scheduled, and suggestions are welcome! If there’s a place you want to go, or something you want to try (Horseback riding? Hot air balloon trips? White water rafting?) let our Outdoor Recreation Program organizers know, and they can help get you there.
