Sports and Recreation

The Recreation program at UW Bothell has been growing rapidly over the past two years. With the introduction of the Sports and Recreation Complex and the Activities Recreation Center (ARC), program offerings have exploded! UWB Faculty and Staff are able to purchase a $60 quarterly Rec Pass that allows them to use the Fitness Center.

The WholeU

The Whole U fosters community, shares ways to stay healthy, and promotes the great benefits and services available to UW faculty and staff.

This program is managed by a host of ambassadors from the Seattle, Bothell, and Tacoma campuses. If you have ideas or feedback that you would like to share, please contact your UW Bothell Ambassador or click here to share your ideas directly with the WholeU.
