Simon Rec Center Floor Plan

Outdoor Recreation Area

The outdoor recreation adjacent to Simon Recreation Center, known on campus as SLUruba, includes two pools, lounge chairs, a sand volleyball court and a barbecue grill. It is open daily beginning in early spring and remains open into the fall, as long as Simon Recreation members continue to use the space.

Please note that the grill is only available through the facility reservation form (link above).

Outdoor Fields

Campus Recreation maintains four outdoor fields for drop-in recreation, intramural sports and club sports. Field reservations are made through the facility reservation form (link above).

Medical Center Recreational Complex

The Medical Center Recreational Complex features a natural grass soccer field and an eight-lane track. In addition to club sports and drop-in recreation, the facility hosts SLU's track and field team — the largest NCAA Division I sports team at the University.

Located just east of the Hickory garages, near the Allied Health Professions Building at SLU's Medical Center, the complex is open to community drop-in use.


SLU Medical Center Track

This eight-lane, NCAA-regulation track, located at SLU’s Medical Center Recreation Complex, is available to the SLU community for drop-in use from sunrise to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and all day on weekends, unless there is a scheduled track meet or sporting event being hosted on the field.

Hermann Stadium Track

This 1/3-mile jogging track surrounds the soccer field at Hermann Stadium, allowing walkers and joggers a great option for exercise on SLU's campus. Be sure to check when Billiken varsity soccer games are being held, as track use is not allowed during those times.

Simon Recreation Center

The indoor track at Simon Recreation Center is open to members whenever the center is open and is approximately 1/7 of a mile long.
