University Recreation has made substantial renovations to the UREC Sports Complex at 1486 Mitchell Street to improve our existing outdoor collegiate recreation facilities. Now open to club and intramural sports programming, the UREC Sports Complex offers one competition and practice club sports surface as well as four intramural playing surfaces for heightened programming capabilities.

These renovations include the installation of new lighting and artificial playing turf, which will provide greater flexibility for the Club Sports and Intramural Sports programs when scheduling games and practices. Additionally, the introduction of Informal Recreation and Fitness Programs to these outdoor spaces will greatly expand the scope of UREC's programming capabilities.
