Our goal at Campus Recreation is to provide members of the USF St. Petersburg campus community the opportunity to engage in physical and leisure activities on the level they desire. Whether you are looking to join a team sport, de-stress with a yoga class or explore the great outdoors, we have it all for you.

We offer a variety of facilities and programs to help you stay active. Campus Recreation programs range from competitive sports, fitness, outdoor recreation and aquatics. Our facilities include two outdoor basketball courts, two sand volleyball courts, one multi-use recreation field, state of the art fitness equipment and a variety of water vessels such as kayaks, canoes, paddle boards and sailboats.

We encourage you to explore Campus Recreations programs, services and facilities. Service animals and personal attendants are welcome. We encourage you to reach out to USF St. Petersburg’s office of Student Disability Services if you need additional information or have questions related to access.
