From fitness classes to our Fitness Center, there are plenty of ways to get active on campus.


The University of the Arts Fitness Center consists of a cardio room, strength training room, and spaces for group exercise classes. It features multiple exercise machines, free weights, and additional exercise essentials such as foam rollers, resistance bands, and jump ropes. 

The Fitness Center is staffed by a Certified Personal Trainer who will always be on site during the hours of operation. They are there to check in students, answer fitness-related questions, provide Fitness Center orientations, and assist you along your fitness journey.
