Welcome to CRCE

CRCE (pronounced ‘sir-see’) is located in the heart of campus, behind Freer Hall. Close to Krannert Center for the Performing Arts and two blocks from Foellinger Auditorium, it is within walking distance of the Quad.

Opened in 1988, the Campus Recreation Center East (CRCE) facility received an addition and facelift in 2005, becoming the perfect complement to the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC).
