University of Houston is a Division I college with over 35,000 undergraduate and post graduate/graduate students enrolled. This campus is considered to be one of the most diverse student populations in the nation. In January 2003, Campus Recreation opened a brand new $53 million, 264,000 square foot facility. There is a 53 foot climbing wall with 13 belay stations in the very center of the facility. This climbing wall features two auto-belays and many natural face features. The facility contains five basketball courts, five volleyball courts, a Multi-Activity-Court for indoor soccer, in-line hockey, team handball and tennis. The quarter mile suspended track surrounds all of the courts as well as a 24,000 square foot fitness zone containing free weights, selectorized equipment and a cardio theatre. The 70-meter indoor pool contains a competitive diving well and floating bulkheads. Included in the outdoor leisure pool is a slide, sand volleyball court and plenty of deck space.
