Staying active is an important part of living a balanced life as a college student.

Something as simple as a stroll around Indian Pond can energize you for the rest of the day. Find a workout that works for you.

An students can access its facilities from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.

The UAlbany Aquatic Center is located in the basement of the Physical Education building. The pool is open Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, the center is open 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.


There are a variety of fun workout classes on campus for people at all fitness levels. There’s Zumba and yoga multiple times a week as well as kickboxing and bootcamp-style classes. All teachers are UAlbany students certified for group exercise. Get some friends together and turn working out into a bonding activity.

If none of these appeal to you try the low ropes course near Indian. It offers safe and fun team building activities. To organize a ropes course group activity, download the form on the campus recreation website. Walking with friends and running around campus are also easily accessible options. Enjoy your workout!
