About the Student Recreation Complex and Campus Recreation Department

At a Glance

Along with opportunities to stay physically active, develop healthy lifestyle habits and grow social circles with a variety of people, the Campus Recreation Department and the Student Recreation Complex (SRC) aligns with the mission of the university to help complete the development of students by offering a variety of opportunities in leadership through employment and participation. The Campus Recreation staff hopes you will take advantage of all of the opportunities offered to help you develop into the best you can be.


Our focus is to assist in the development of the individual physically, mentally and emotionally through active participation. The Student Fitness Center of the SRC is the focal point for Campus Recreation Department opportunities at Stanislaus State. Our staff believes that physical activity plays a vital role in the development and maintenance of a "healthy, well-adjusted" individual. The activities available are a means to educate participants, provide opportunities for group and individual competition, provide opportunities for social and personal interaction between students, provide guidance in the area of health-related fitness, and to provide student leadership opportunities.

About Us

Located on the east side of campus, the Campus Recreation Department is an integral component of the Student Recreation Complex.  The Campus Recreation Department is headquartered in the Student Fitness Center which is equipped with state of the art cardiovascular and weight training equipment in the fitness room for your personal fitness workouts, a group exercise room for exercise classes and personal fitness training, and a multi-sport gymnasium for recreation play. You can check out a locker key, basketballs, volleyballs, jump ropes, sweat towels and more. Towels for showering should be brought from home. Outside the Fitness Center, you will find climbing boulders and the Al Brenda Track. Keys to the track are available at the Welcome Desk when the track is not in use by a group reservation.

The Campus Recreation Department maintains and schedules use of the SRC’s Recreation and Intramural fields, Practice Soccer Complex and The SRC Warrior Stadium, home to the Men’s and Women’s soccer and track teams.


Innovative construction materials or methods

A unique roof deck material is provided that acts as the structural support for the roof, functions as an acoustically absorptive ceiling layer, and enables the efficient employment of insulation to reduce energy consumption by this large volumed facility. Additionally, skylights are provided throughout the facility to allow daylight to illuminate the spaces to the maximum degree practicable, reducing energy usage by artificial lighting. Tall ceilinged spaces, with fans recirculating air within each space, allow for the thermal comfort of the building occupants while maintaining higher ambient temperatures in the building, reducing the need for artificial cooling of spaces.

Sustainable Green Features

As noted above. Roof overhangs are designed to block the intense summer sun and will let in the cooler winter sun. Recycled floor and ceiling tiles and low VOC emitting paint are used. Mechanical, electrical, systems and building envelope are designed to exceed Title 24 energy requirements by 15%.

Use of technology

Technology serves the building and the operational budget by providing energy-efficient lighting, heating, and cooling, systems that reduce utility bills and energy consumption. Connectivity to campus networks is provided in spaces where staff needs such access to perform their required professional responsibilities.

Risk Management
