Using U-M’s exercise facilities for cardio, strength training or a game of basketball is time well spent. Just a short walk from most of your engineering classes is the North Campus Rec Building (NCRB), which offers free 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. access to weights, cardio machines, a pool and courts for volleyball, basketball, racquetball and more.
Taking advantage of these numerous facilities at the University—from intramural sports to yoga classes at the North and Central Campus Rec Buildings—can help to reduce stress and improve your overall well-being.
