Equipment Checkout Policy:

When equipment is checked out from the Campus Recreation Center (CRC), it is the responsibility of the patron who checked out equipment to return equipment that same day and in the same condition as it was when checked out. If equipment is not returned within 48 hours of checkout, the patron who checked out the equipment will owe the Campus Recreation Center the value of the equipment plus a processing fee before being granted further access to the CRC. If equipment is not returned within 14 days, the missing equipment fee will be charged to the student's account.

Disc Golf Course

Catamount Link is our on-campus disc golf course featuring 13 holes and 1 practice basket. Check out discs at the CRC equipment cage, then start at Hole #1 directly behind the CRC.

Intramural Fields

The Intramural Fields are located across the street/creek from the football stadium and the Ramsey Center. Depending on the semester, they accommodate two flag football fields, two softball fields, and one rugby field. These fields are typically reserved for Intramural Sports and Club Sport practices/games, but they can also be used for informal recreation on a first come, first serve basis. Groups wanting to reserve the intramural fields must fill out a facility request form.

Reid Gym and Pool

Reid Gym is the building southwest of the Campus Recreation Center, which is managed by the School of Teaching and Learning. Located within Reid are four gymnasiums and a pool. While the facility is mainly used for health education classes and parks and recreation management academic classes, Intramural Sports games are often held here too. To access upstairs Reid before 9:00pm, you can enter through the Reid Fitness area to take the stairwell upstairs.  If after 9 p.m., you must walk around to the backside of Reid and enter through a set of double doors at the bottom of a stair well. To get to Reid Pool, you must first enter the locker rooms and through there you may reach the pool.

Climbing Wall

WCU is home to one of the most extensive climbing programs in the East, and we have the tallest collegiate wall in North Carolina. The Climbing wall typically opens on weekdays at 4pm, with additional hours for clinics, family climbs, and kids climbs also available. 

Multi-Use Trail System

Our campus contains over six miles of single-track trail perfect for mountain bikers, hikers, and trail runners.
