Student Recreation Center (REC) (Juneau)

The Student Recreation Center facility is a joint-use facility with the Alaska Army National Guard (AANG). This shared facility includes basketball and volleyball courts, a suspended running/walking track, cardio equipment, a thirty-foot indoor climbing wall, a weight training room, a dance/cardio studio, and two classrooms. Exclusive for UAS is the Student Activity Center (SAC) which features a student lounge, stage and dance floor, pool & ping-pong tables, flat screen television, and a 21-foot movie screen with a 4k projector.

All students are welcome to use the recreation center and take advantage of the wide variety of events, programs, court nights, and entertainment offerings. All students registering for a Juneau-based class, on-site or distance, are assessed a per credit consolidated fee which includes access to the facility and its diverse program offerings. Faculty, staff, and alumni may purchase memberships in order to have unlimited access to the many opportunities for recreation and exercise at this facility. Membership options may be discussed with the front desk staff at any time. Many programs such as concerts, dances, performances, court sports, and movies are free to all students at all times. The Student Recreation Center rents equipment to students, faculty, staff, and Alumni & Friends members including backpacks, tents, cross-country skis, snowshoes, lake craft, and much more.

The Student Recreation Center is a university-based facility and all members must show a valid university ID to access the facility at each visit. In the event of a US Homeland Security Red Alert, the recreation facility access may be curtailed at the request of the AANG. Members must show a UAS ID to access the facility each time they use the facility for security requirements. The facility is for the exclusive use of AANG and UAS and is not open to the general public except at special events open to the general public.
