You shouldn’t spend all your time in the classroom. In fact, we encourage you to exercise your body as much as your mind. Between classes, go shoot some hoops, swim a few laps, or take a couple of runs around the track. You might consider joining one of our men’s and women’s intercollegiate teams. Brooklyn College competes in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III, and we are especially known for our champion basketball, cross country, and softball teams.

If you just want to make friends and have some fun, check out our intramural program. The Office of Recreation, Intramurals, and Intercollegiate Athletics organizes one-on-one events, free-throw and three-point competitions, and co-ed team sports such as softball, tennis, and volleyball. If you’d rather not join a team at all, we invite you to use our recreational facilities in the West Quad Center on your own schedule. From our well-equipped fitness center to our eight-lane swimming pool, you’ll find lots of ways to relax and burn off some calories before, between, and after classes.

Sports and Fitness

From intercollegiate athletic teams to fitness facilities for individual achievement, our recreation facilities are guaranteed to help you meet your goals.


The recreation and intramurals program is a great way to participate in sports and meet new friends. You’ll have the opportunity to display your athletic prowess without officially joining one of our Division III teams.

Our recreation facilities include a swimming pool; fitness center; basketball, handball, and volleyball courts; running track; tennis courts; and more.

Brooklyn. All in.
