Adelphi’s recreation facilities support a wide range of activities.

Center for Recreation and Sports

The 76,000 square-foot Center for Recreation and Sports (CRS) opened in 2008 as a vibrant, energized place to take part in your favorite sport or activity.

The spacious atrium provides views to the outdoors as well as to the fitness center, pool and studio in Woodruff Hall. A friendly staff member will greet you at the information control desk and direct you to your desired destination. Relax or meet up with friends in the mezzanine lounge, or grab a healthy snack or smoothie at the Legends Café after your workout.

Enjoy views of the outdoors from the three-lane walking and jogging track which is approx. 1/10th of a mile. (9 1/2 times around make a mile).

A three-court gymnasium for basketball, volleyball, badminton, and many other activities are located on the lower level. Sneakers are required for participating in any activities in the gym. Food, drinks, and gum are not allowed.

Located on the lower level, equipped with grooming stations and swimsuit dryers, there are both day-use and annually rented lockers available. Locker registration takes place at the Recreation Department located in Woodruff Hall, Room 240.

Access to the swimming pool is at the rear of the recreation locker rooms.

Just bring your ID to check out equipment such as basketballs, volleyballs, badminton or tennis rackets, and much more. Visit the equipment issue desk in CRS room 028 at the lower level if you wish to check out the equipment.
