LSU is home to the state of the art, 250,000-square-foot UREC (University Recreation). An addition and facelift was completed in September 2017, and now it’s one of the best student recreation facilities in the United States and has something for every exerciser.
A total of 40,000 square feet are devoted to cardio and strength training, and runners have access to a 1/3-mile indoor track that covers two floors. Amenities like a 35-foot climbing wall, indoor basketball and volleyball courts, outdoor athletic fields, and three pools keep students coming back. The rec center estimates between 7,000 and 12,000 visits each week.
"Life Fitness is an industry leader. From original upright bikes to the SYNRGY360 and everything in between, Life Fitness is a brand that you can count on decade after decade. Durable, functional and responsive."
- Laurie Braden, Executive Director of LSU University Recreation.
