Athletics & Recreation

Study hard. Play hard, too!

We have varsity teams, intramural, a gym, yoga and other fitness classes, and a riverfront trail for jogging and cycling. If being a spectator is more your thing, come cheer on the Lancers in the newly constructed Told Lancer Centre.

Toldo Lancer Centre Rec Services

Our state-of-the-art Toldo Lancer Centre

With a footprint larger than a major city block, the stunning sports and recreation facility boasts 119,000 sq. ft. of new versatile space and a variety of amenities for UWindsor students, faculty and staff as well as the greater Windsor-Essex community to enjoy. It’s truly a place for all.

A generous $55 million contribution by UWindsor students, the largest student contribution ever for a Canadian university, and the addition of private and community partnerships made this project a reality.
