Sports & Recreation

Soccer kicks off

We’re coming together as a team. It’s really cool to see the talents from all over the world come together here.”
- Josh Jarecke, member of CU Denver men’s club soccer team

Getting out there

That's my favorite part of leading the trips -- taking someone who didn't know that these places existed at all, much less so close to their front door, and introducing them to the joy of playing in them."
- Matt Davidson, a student instructor at the Outdoor Adventure Center

Climb a 14er in the morning and catch a Rockies game in the evening

At CU Denver your opportunities to participate in sports and recreation are nearly unlimited. We have more than a dozen teams in our fast-growing club sports program—Go Lynx!

Scheduled to open in the spring of 2018, the CU Denver Student Wellness Center will encapsulate the six dimensions of wellness our students want to explore: social, physical, emotional, spiritual, financial and creative. The facility will be a space to fit your needs, with lounge spaces, study spaces, a commuter kitchen, 10,000 square feet of fitness space, a 3-court gymnasium and 6-lane swimming pool.​

At Campus Recreation at Auraria, students are already enjoying open gym, group fitness classes, personal training and outdoor adventure programs, and the Health Center at Auraria buzzes with healthy pursuits in dance, Zumba®, yoga, pilates, qigong, meditation and health and wellness workshops.

Explore Denver's hundreds of miles of bike and hike trails, beautiful parks, golf courses, swimming pools and tennis courts. The mountains beckon you to ski and snowboard, hike, cycle, climb, camp, fish, kayak, whitewater raft or just stroll through an historic mining town.

No matter your sporting or outdoors preference, you'll love getting active here in the sunshine of Denver and the Rocky Mountains!
