With nice weather here to stay, it’s time to take advantage of it and get outside. There are plenty of activities to do around campus.
Stay active and get outdoors with these resources on campus:
Student Recreation and Wellness Center
The Student Recreation and Wellness Center (SRWC) is open throughout the summer. Summer passes are available for purchase in the form of either a full-summer or half-summer pass. These passes are available to current students, students from other schools, faculty and staff. Visit the SRWC website for more information on the summer rates.
The SRWC facilities include numerous outdoor activities such as: sand volleyball courts, tennis courts, soccer fields, running/walking routes and more. There are also baseball and football fields located farther off-campus on the corner of New York Avenue and Jackson Street at East Hall Park.
The outdoor activities branch of the SRWC offers many different pieces of equipment for rent. There are bikes, in-line skates, various sporting equipment, lawn games and camping equipment available. When it’s nice out, there are even one and two-person kayaks. Check out the full list of equipment for the different rates.
Part of the Wiouwash State Trail runs through Oshkosh and the rest of Winnebago County as well as directly through the UW Oshkosh campus. Whether walking, running or biking, get out and enjoy the riverside trail. There are even routes that are mapped out to start and end near the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.
