Campus Recreation

Campus Recreation strives to enhance the experience of a diverse student body by encouraging an active, healthy and balanced lifestyle through engagement in our recreational facilities, programs and services.

Students can become involved in Campus Recreation through the use of the Tyrrell Fitness Center, a comprehensive weight room and fitness center. Students can also choose to engage with Campus Recreation through Intramural Sports and open gym programming.

Get out there and have some fun this fall with the return of Intramural Sports to Elmhurst College!

You can form a team and join an Intramural league with weekly matches. Or, if you don’t want to commit to a season of play, you can opt to participate in our monthly tournaments. In any case, Intramurals are an opportunity to get active, have fun and meet some like-minded friends.

Want to play, but can’t find a team? Contact the Coordinator of Campus Recreation to get connected!

What to Expect

Yin Yoga
Clear your mind.

Hatha Yoga
Energy and breathing.

Take the “work” out of “workout” by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning, total-body 60-minute workout. No dance experience is necessary.

Zumba Strong
It combines body-weight, muscle conditioning, cardio and plyometric training movements synced to music to create an optimal total-body HIIT workout.

Keep an eye out for Campus Recreation-sponsored outings, including kayaking the Chicago River. Stop by our office in the Frick Center for more details.
