UPDATED INFORMATION: 6/25/2020

We are developing plans to protect campus community members’ health and safety during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Campus Recreation will offer a combination of in-person and online fitness and wellness programs and services, that will remain in compliance with the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), while balancing the comfort and safety of individuals.

Once these plans are finalized, we will need time to prepare our facilities and staff to meet the new requirements. Updates will be shared with the Campus Recreation community via our website as they become available.

Thank you for your continued patience as we work hard towards welcoming you safely back into our facilities. For more information about the university’s COVID-19 response,  please visit https://covid19.illinois.edu/.

Part-time Positions

I like working at Campus Recreation because it is exciting and eventful, as well as provides a constant atmosphere for advancement and improvement. As a program assistant for Adventure Recreation, there are always new and different things for me to accomplish to keep the climbing wall running smoothly. I am also challenged to try my best and come up with new ideas to make the department better. I get the opportunity to work surrounded by many of my friends in a place where I am continually spending my time.
