Recreational Facilities

The University's wide variety of available facilities for recreational participation provides students, faculty, and staff with the resources for programs in sport, fitness, and wellness.  Please remember to present your Barry University ID card.

Recreation & Wellness Office

Everything you need to know about participating in the physical activity of your choice can be found in the CRW office.¬† Located in Landon 112, the office is the main hub for signing up to play in intramural sport leagues, adding on to a wellness class, glancing at out our recreational facility schedules, or simply checking out equipment for recreational play. Check out our fitness programs like the BUCwalking challenge, the Biggest Winner, and Personal Training! By providing students, faculty and staff with a broad-based program of activities, a safe environment, and a chance to incorporate movement and recreation into one’s daily schedule, there is “something for everyone.”

Penafort Pool

Located in front of Weber and Adrian Halls, the pool is available for daily use by members of the Barry community. Recent renovations to the pool include a state of the art chemical controller system, a new, expended deck to accommodate bigger events, and improved landscaping and fencing to compliment the aesthetic enhancements to the pool. All those who use the pool must abide by the rules and regulations posted at poolside. The pool closes at 10:00 pm nightly. No lifeguard on duty.

Health and Sports Center

The Health and Sports Center houses a 1,500 seat arena, a modern strength and conditioning facility, a modern rehabilitation and training area, a human performance laboratory and classrooms. The HSC building also houses the offices of the School of Human Performance and Leisure Sciences. All facilities are available for student, faculty, and staff use during designated hours.

Outdoor Racquet Sports Complex

Located alongside the Health and Sports Center, the fully lighted outdoor center is the home of our men's and women's tennis teams and is available for class instruction as well as recreational play. In South Florida, the year round weather is inviting, and racquet sports are designed for life long participation.

Miller Studio

Located in the Thompson Hall Building, this enclosed facility featuring wooden floors and surrounded by mirrors provides space for wellness and instructional use. Group exercise favorites like aerobics, Spinning, Pilates, Yoga, Zumba, kick boxing, and others are excellent ways to meet new people and stay in shape. All are welcome to attend wellness classes, and students are encouraged to add them on as Instructional Sport & recreational (ISR) classes. Imagine: getting a great work out AND earning college credit! Please remember, all participants must present a current Barry I.D.
