SRC Hot Tub Closed
The SRC hot tub is closed due to a mechanical issue. We are unsure when it will be available again. The SRC Pool is still operational.

As University Recreation (UREC), we engage the WSU community in healthy, active living. Regular physical activity has been shown to enhance learning, academic achievement, and contribute to emotional health. UREC provides a safe and inclusive environment where students, faculty and staff can explore new ways to incorporate exercise into their lives. Trending and diverse programming opportunities facilitate a campus experience to contribute to a lifetime of productivity and health. Facilities and equipment are on a continuous cycle of maintenance to provide maximum safety for all users.  

  • Where we started

  • The Student Recreation Center became a student issue in the spring of 1996 when the student body president at the time had high interest in building a facility solely dedicated to the recreational needs of WSU students. A task force was then formed to determine the feasibility of the project, and with overwhelming student support the idea of the Student Recreation Center was put to a vote to determine if students were willing to pay fees for such a facility. The vote passed with a 64 percent approval of a mandatory WSU fee to finance the construction and operation of the SRC. Program and pre-design planning began immediately.

    Student Guidance

    • University Recreation Advisory Board: oversees operational decisions including budgets, programming priorities and master planning for both University Recreation and the Chinook Student Center
    • Sport Club Federation Advisory Council: oversees sport club policy review and enforcement, recommends sanctions for clubs who violate policy outside of the authority of the Center for Community Standards. 
    • Student Employee Advisory Council: serves as liaison between UREC temporary employees and professional staff, develops employee recognition programs and provides feedback to improve operations. 
    • Funding and SRC fee rate is approved through the student Services and Activities (S&A) Fees Committee.
