UREC Facility Rentals and Reservations
UREC is a state-of-the-art recreation facility located in the heart of JMU's campus and the Shenandoah Valley. With over 278,515 square feet of recreation space, UREC can host a variety of events including but not limited to team practices, tournaments, after-Prom activities, birthday parties, company and organization retreats, climbing wall group outings, swim practices and meeting spaces.
All rental requests for group use of facilities are considered on an individual basis. Exclusive reservations of spaces are scheduled primarily during times of low membership usage or outside normal hours of operation. University break periods are often a great time to utilize the facilities because usage is lower - these breaks include Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, Spring Break, May Session Break, and Summer Break.

Contact the UREC Senior Assistant Director for Reservations and Events (540-568-8718) to inquire about rentals. Any JMU Department or Student Organization may request to reserve UREC facility rental space through Virtual EMS. Non-University groups may use UREC space pending space availability. Signed waivers are required for each participant of a birthday party.
