Fitness and Recreational Services

UNM-Valencia has a fully equipped wellness center on site that includes cardiovascular, flexibility, and strength training equipment. We offer courses for credit and are developing non-credit community education programming for active participants who are not interested in applying and enrolling in credit courses. Come by for a tour and see what we have to offer!

The facility is open Monday – Friday. Operating hours are posted weekly at the center, and on the wellness center link at the campus website. Announcements and current programming are communicated through UNM Valencia campus social media platforms. The wellness center staff may answer questions about the schedule.

The center is available to support sports clubs for students and the community.

Teach a class! If you are interested in leading a class like aerobics, martial arts, pilates, resistance training, walking for fitness, or zumba, let us know. We will promote the course, collect the fees, and schedule the class.
