The University Y Student Center, operating as a full-service YMCA branch, offers a variety of fitness and recreation services to students, as well as the greater university and Tacoma community. From an NCAA regulation basketball court, to a climbing wall, to daily fitness classes, the University Y is a hub of student life on the UW Tacoma campus. Access to the fitness equipment and services in the University Y requires an active membership to the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties.
