Student Recreation Center



The Student Recreation Center at Fresno State offers over 50,000 square feet of indoor recreational space.  We offer structured programming, such as Intramural Sports and Group Fitness classes as well as opportunities for Open Recreation like weight and cardio training and pick up basketball and volleyball games - just to name a few.

The SRC boasts the 2 largest gymnasiums on campus.  Each gymnasium has 2 full, NCAA regulation basketball or volleyball courts.  Gyms are available for pick-up basketball games and can also be set up for volleyball and badminton.

The West Gym houses many of our Intramural Sports tournaments and games, including basketball, co-rec basketball, indoor soccer, volleyball and the annual dodgeball tournament.  The facility is also host to many community and on-campus recreation events.  If you are interested in booking a gym for a tournament or recreation event, please visit this link or contact Amy Allen.


The center section of the SRC is the Main Fitness Floor.  Here you will find two floors of fitness equipment ranging from cardio machines to cable strength training machines to free weights to stretching pieces and fitness equipment like BOSU balls, medicine and stability balls and plyo boxes.
