Athletics and Recreation

As a Maroon, you have access to an impressive array of sports and fitness facilities, programs, and services through Athletics & Recreation. Join intramural teams, club sports, classes, and fitness programs, and find out when and where you can access facilities

When you are physically active, you feel better, think more clearly, and have more fun. Whether you play broomball through the House System or represent the University as a Varsity athlete, fitness and sports play an important role in your health and wellbeing. By getting involved, you also meet and socialize with other members of the University community; more than 18,000 people participated in Athletics & Recreation programs last year. 

At UChicago, our student athletes are scholars who focus on academics while excelling beyond the classroom walls. An NCAA Division III school, UChicago has a proud history of competitive athletics, and some of our favorite traditions come from rivalries with peer schools. Sports events are a great way to spend time with friends and meet new ones, so head out and support your favorite teams.
