RECREATION FOR EVERYBODY

At GCU, you’ll find people and programs that bring out the best in you as a student, athlete, and member of our community.

Whether you’re a student-athlete, gym rat, event-goer, nature lover—or just want a cozy spot to chill—we have something for you.

Here are some of the ways you can get fit and have fun:

  • Join the Georgian Court University Lions and participate in one of 14 NCAA Division II sports, or try intramural/club sports.
  • Use the fitness and dance facilities at the Wellness Center.
  • Visit the best recreation hotspots in and around campus, such as the bowling alley in The Casino.
  • Get involved in student activities, including 40+ clubs and organizations, community service projects, and student leadership programs.

ATHLETICS COMPLEX

If you’re a student-athlete, play intramural sports, or enjoy tennis or running, you’ll want to check out the Athletic Complex. It has two soccer fields, two softball fields, six tennis courts, and an eight-lane track surrounding a turf field with throwing areas.

THE CASINO

You won’t find any gambling here, but there’s plenty of entertainment! Play court tennis, go bowling, or take a swim in the 45-foot indoor marble pool. The Lion’s Den lounge also has comfy seats, table tennis, pool, and large screen TVs.

GCU Mansion

THE MANSION

With its impressive Georgian architecture and Gilded Age décor, the Mansion is a must-see for any student. You might find yourself in the Great Hall for celebrations, special events, or ceremonies held by our student clubs and organizations.

LAKEWOOD, NEW JERSEY

Take your adventures off campus. We’re close to the sea, so you can soak up the sun along the Jersey Shore. Explore Lakewood’s historic downtown and catch a movie or concert at the Strand Theater. Or plan a night of good food and fun with local restaurants, parks, baseball and more.
