Working Out

Now that you have eaten, it’s time to get in shape!

Wilson Recreation Center

Wilson is the nicest and largest gym at Duke University.  It is located on West Campus, off of Towerview Drive.  It contains basketball courts (as does the neighboring Card Gymnasium), aerobic exercise machines, a weight room, a swimming pool, a spinning area, saunas, and other multipurpose rooms in which various physical education classes are held (some for free).  There is also a juice bar called Quenchers that has energy bars, protein shakes, and fruit.  Outside Wilson there are also indoor and outdoor tennis courts.  Remember to bring your Duke Card to enter Wilson.

Brodie Gymnasium

Brodie is the older, smaller gym on campus, located on East Campus. Brodie also has basketball courts, a smaller swimming pool, a weight room, and some aerobic exercise machines and multipurpose rooms in which classes are held.  Several tennis courts are located outside.  As always, you must have your Duke Card to enter.


There are outdoor basketball courts on both East and Central Campus. There are also turf fields for soccer or other outdoor sports on East Campus and on West Campus next to the Whitford parking lots and the soccer stadium.
