Fitness & Recreation


Trying to stay in shape? Looking for new ways to socialize or enjoy a friendly competition? UIndy dedicates multiple spaces to fitness and recreation for students at no extra cost. Whatever gets you moving, you’ll find plenty of options to help keep you active, inspired and motivated. And no matter where you are on campus, you’re never far from a good workout.

UIndy Fitness Center

The UIndy Fitness Center is located on the lower level of the Ruth Lilly Fitness Center and is free for all UIndy students, faculty and staff. The fitness center houses equipment for all fitness levels, including treadmills, elliptical machines, exercise and spinning bikes, weight machines, free-weight stations, medicine balls, and sport equipment rental to use in the gyms in RLFC and Nicoson Hall (basketballs, soccer balls, wiffle ball, volleyballs). Flat-screen TVs throughout the room help make burning those calories and increasing body strength more enjoyable.

University students, faculty and staff must present a University ID upon entry. Information about the Fitness Center hours are available here. 

*In the case of inclement weather, please refer to My UIndy for closings.

Apart from the UIndy Fitness Center on the lower level, you’ll find a variety of other activity options in the RLFC. View the hours for the Ruth Lilly Fitness Center and the pool. You can also:
