Campus Recreation

The Office of Campus Recreation seeks to enrich the quality of life for students, faculty, and staff by providing a broad program of sports, outdoor, and fitness activities for men and women of all ability levels. Such programs include intramural sports, club sports, Outdoor Pursuits, open recreation, group fitness, and personal training. Campus Recreation is also responsible for managing the Miller Fitness Center and all of the activities within Reynolds Gymnasium. Campus Recreation provides a healthy outlet for every student, and a convenient option for every staff and faculty member in a safe place where the whole person is central each and every day. In support of the gym and the University’s extensive wellbeing center facilities, the University is introducing wellness center membership fees for some community members starting September 1. The wellness fee for full-time, Reynolda campus students will be $150 per semester. Graduate students may opt to have the fee waived online through the Wake Information System (WIN). Graduate students who elect to opt out of the wellness fee will not have access to campus wellness, recreation and fitness facilities, equipment and related programs, including intramural sports and club sports.

The spouses and live-in partners of Wake Forest University students who have a wellness membership may purchase their own wellness center membership through Campus Recreation.

The Miller Fitness Center houses Campus Recreation’s one large group fitness studio. The fitness studio is located on the 4th floor. The Miller Center has two gender-specific locker rooms, each has 12 day-use only lockers and one shower available.
