Recreation & Wellness offers an array of engaging recreational opportunities that enrich the UAlbany experience for students, faculty and staff. We encourage you to explore our facilities and programs today — for the health of it!

Our general rules and and protocols include:

  • Only current UAlbany students, faculty and staff members may access our indoor facilities at this time. All patrons must show a valid UAlbany ID.
  • Closures — and any exceptions — are communicated on this website, as well as on our Facebook and Instagram pages. 
  • Capital Region community members may use our outdoor courts, fields, trails and paths.


Partner with Recreation & Wellness (Programming & Events)

Recreation & Wellness is available to partner with student organizations, classes, departments, units and other campus groups to provide wellness programming and events. 

Participants learn valuable skills for maintaining their physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being from group discussions, speakers and hands-on activities. For example, we’ve recently offered the following programs: 

  • Mindful Eating Workshop 
  • Epilepsy First Aid Training 
  • Weight-lifting Clinic 
  • Foam Rolling & Stretching Workshop 
  • Everything You Need to Know About Birth Control 
  • Sleep 101 Workshop 
  • What is macro, anyway? 

To request a workshop or to partner with us, please email [email protected] and include the program you’re interested in, the ideal date and time, and a brief description of your audience in your email.

Note: We need at least one week’s notice to implement most of the programs we co-host.
