Stay up to date with the ARC Expansion

To meet the growing needs of students, the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC) will begin construction July, 2017. This expansion will take place over several phases. Visit the ARC expansion page as information will be updated there are the new phases roll out.

Campus Recreation (CR) recognizes that physical activity is a key component of a healthy lifestyle. Incorporating exercise and recreation into your daily routine can increase your energy and improve your confidence. The CR Activities and Recreation Center (ARC) offers both informal and formal recreation opportunities, making it easy for you to keep fit, relax, have fun and meet your fitness goals.

Current UC Davis students and CR Members may use the ARC at no additional cost. Programming within the ARC, including Group Exercise classes, Dance Series classes, Martial Arts Series classes, Personal Training, rock climbing and Intramural Sports, may require an additional low-cost fee. UC Davis faculty, staff, alumni, retirees and community members may enjoy the ARC by purchasing an affordable CR Membership. Current university employees may elect the payroll deduction option.
