Fall 2016

Life’s about balance-get out and get active!  The Recreation Department here at Western is dedicated to providing the campus community with a multitude of various recreational activities to encourage physical fitness and promote a positive well-being. 

Our university is unique in that the Western community can utilize athletic facilities on two different campuses.  At Midtown you will find the NEW Colonial Fitness Zone for cardio workouts and strength training.  Studios A & B are now open for aerobics and fitness classes, and the Bill Williams Gymnasium plays host to Intramural Leagues and Open Recreation.  Our Westside campus is home to the William A. O’Neill Athletic and Convocation Center, which houses a six-lane natatorium, four full courts for basketball and volleyball, and a fitness center for cardio and strength training.  Also located here is the Westside Athletic Complex, three spacious practice fields and six lighted tennis courts.  And inside the Westside Campus Center is a fitness room mainly focused on cardio fitness and core strength training.
