WE'VE MOVED!  The fitness center in Berkshire Hall has now relocated to the space that was previously the "Black Box Theater" (across from the stage).  This bright, open space is more than double the square footage of our previous center.  We look for forward to seeing you this semester-just look for the Colonial Fitness Zone signs . . .


*There are lockers in both the hallway and in the locker rooms available to store personal belongings.  You WILL NOT be permitted to leave your bags in the facility.  We recommend you have your own combination lock that you bring with you to secure the locker you use.


**At this time, our recreational facilities (i.e. pool and fitness rooms) are only available to current students, faculty and staff only.  We do not offer community memberships.

Fall 2015

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.  The Berkshire Stage is 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.

Active Club Sports...Spring 2015

The Club Sports Program provides an opportunity for individuals who share a common interest in a recreational sport, to improve their skill level and overall knowledge of the sport or activity.  Club Sports can be organized on either a recreational or a competitive level.  Instructional activities range from informal play, to regular practices, in preparation for intercollegiate and tournament competition.  Many clubs compete with other schools and are a part of a collegiate league of play.
