The Recreation Office is housed in the Center for Health and Well-Being. We provide a variety of programs and services to Indiana University of Pennsylvania and the community.

These programs include Fitness, Aquatics, Instructional, and Informal Recreation.

We provide an opportunity for competition, conditioning, and a break from the stress of work and academics. Participants have an opportunity to learn new skills by participating in our many offerings of classes.

Our Goal

  • To meet the needs and interests of IUP students, faculty, and staff in a wide range of physical, instructional, and recreational pursuits
  • To provide students the space and opportunity to recreate
  • To put smiles on all recreators’ faces!
