What are intramural activities?

Intramurals are recreational sporting activities that provide opportunities for the Illinois community to participate in scheduled events at all levels. Leagues, events, and tournaments are offered in a variety of sports. Soccer, basketball, volleyball, flag football, tennis, and online e-sports are just a few activities offered. Intramurals provide a space for the campus community to compete in a fun and safe environment.

Who is eligible to participate?

Community members who have a UIUC I-card, Safer Illinois App Access, and…

  • Full-Time Illinois Students (who have a current Intramural Membership and ARC membership)
  • Part-Time Illinois Students (who have a current Intramural Membership and ARC membership)
  • Faculty/Staff (who have a current Intramural Membership and ARC membership)
  • Spouses (who have a current Intramural Membership and ARC membership)
  • Illinois Affiliates (who have a current Intramural Membership and ARC membership)

In an effort to maintain a level of playing field, there are some restrictions for these groups:

  • Sport Club Athletes: 2 club players are limited to a team for the same sport
  • Varsity Athletes: athletes are only allowed to participate in the offseason of their sport. Athletes must take a gap year to be eligible to play in their sport as well. This applies to all scholarship players, walk-ons, and squad members.
  • Professional Athletes: athletes need two full calendar years to have passed since they have been released or retired.

Unfortunately, guest pass holders cannot participate in Intramural Activities.
