Recreation

Rush University students have the opportunity to utilize two recreation facilities in the area and may receive a partial refund for these two facilities. For students interested in yoga and pilates classes, Rush University Medical Center Employee Wellness sponsors classes during the noon hour and late afternoons. For a class schedule, fees and other information call (312) 942-5878 or visit the Medical Center intranet at iris.rush.edu/wellness and click on Employee Wellness. The Union Station Fitness Formula Club, an affiliate of Rush University Medical Center, offers reduced membership rates for students. This full service, state-of-the-art facility, located at the corner of Jackson and Canal Streets, includes a swimming pool, basketball courts, fitness classes, cardiovascular equipment, strength equipment and weights, private women's workout area, and a café/juice bar. Rush University students also have the opportunity to use the newly renovated UIC Student Center West Facility on the University of Illinois at Chicago campus which includes a gymnasium, running track, racquetball, and universal weight machines. The UIC Student Center West is located at 828 South Wolcott, lower level. Students presenting a valid Rush University I.D. card at either the Union Station Fitness Formula Club or the UIC fitness center will be eligible for admission. Students purchasing passes for these two locations may bring receipts to the Student Services (Suite 440 Armour Academic Center) to receive a partial refund. Receipts must be presented for a refund during the quarter in which the membership was purchased. Schedules listing the facilities, rates and hours of operation are also available. Questions regarding the above recreation facilities can be directed to the Office of Student Affairs at (312) 942-6302.
