Opened in August 2003, the Tennessee Recreation Center for Students (TRECS) boasts four basketball courts and a 1/7th-mile indoor circular track.

The main fitness area includes over 80 pieces of cardiovascular and over 100 strength training stations, which includes a variety of selectorized and free-weight equipment. As part of the cardiovascular selection there are 18 treadmills, 33 elliptical machines along with an in-house entertainment system that allows participants to watch and listen to their favorite TV stations or XM radio as you workout.

Within TRECS, participants can rent outdoor equipment from the Outdoor Rec Center or pick up a snack at Jamba Juice. For those looking for a more relaxing experience, participants can lounge around the pool either on our outdoor patio overlooking the pool or from an upper pool deck connected to the pool. A validated UT ID or RecSports membership card is required to use the TRECS along with a personal towel to workout. Day-use lockers are available in locker rooms and on the track level.
