Student Recreation Center (CSUN)

The Fitness Centre opened its door to CSUN students, faculty/staff, and alumni in the Spring of 1995. Being a partnership between Associated Students and the University Student Union, the Fitness Centre served the entire campus community. The purpose of the Fitness Centre's programs and services was to offer CSUN students, faculty/staff, and alumni members the opportunity to engage in a healthy lifestyle. Through the facility, equipment, and human resources, the Fitness Centre provided a motivational environment in which our patrons were encouraged to maximize their results. Additionally, through other collaborative efforts with other groups and departments on-campus, it was our greatest desire to make fitness and wellness an integral part of campus life.

On April 17-18, 2007, 57% of the students who voted passed the referendum to build a 100,000 plus square foot facility center. Construction for the 100,000 plus square-foot facility and outdoor field complex is slated to begin in the Fall of 2009. Opened on January 26, 2012.

Outdoor artificial turf field
818-677-5434

Located east of the Student Recreation Center is the 130,000 sq. ft. illuminated outdoor SRC Field. Four lights that stand 90 ft. high border the field and a small support building holds storage space, a drinking fountain and restrooms.

The artificial turf is made of silica sand and recycled rubber tires, which creates a surface that is strong, but soft and prevents abrasion. Studies have shown that this turf is safer than natural grass, leading to fewer muscle tears, lower ACL trauma and fewer ligament tears.
