University Recreation Fitness Center

University of Arkansas operates a satellite fitness facility in the Arkansas Union.  The department of University Recreation (UREC) operates this facility in addition to its main facility in the Health, Physical Education and Recreation Building.

The new fitness facility occupies the lower floor space that was vacated by the University of Arkansas Bookstore on the second floor of the Arkansas Union.  The facility features almost 6,000 square feet of fitness floor space, a 1,500-square-foot group exercise room, and men’s and women’s locker and shower facilities.  The facility is available to all current UREC members. Memberships may be purchased at either the HPER main office or UREC Fitness Center office.
