Mind, Body, and Spirit - The RecPlex

As the University reopens in compliance with state and local public health directives, the Fairfield University RecPlex will be used as a Covid-19 testing facility for returning students and will be closed to members beginning Saturday, August 22. The facility will reopen to members on Friday, September 4. Thank you for your understanding.

All members must have a Stag Card and a face covering. Face coverings must be worn at all times while in the RecPlex. The pool, hot tub, showers, water fountains, towel service, yoga mats, guest passes, and equipment rentals will not be available until further notice.

Whether you are an occasional or passionate athlete, the state-of-the-art Fairfield RecPlex will have what our students are looking for in a modern, spacious setting. Our students’ lives outside the classroom matter to us because their wellbeing is the foundation for a rewarding life and an important part of Fairfield’s future legacy.

The moment you step inside, you will know this is a new and special place. From an indoor track and large cardio training suite to ample rooms for classes, and meeting spaces the new-and-improved RecPlex is a great place for students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni and friends.
