Modesto A. Maidique Campus

FIU's main campus offers recreation and fitness programs, gym facilities, and services to Florida International University’s students, faculty, staff and alumni. When you participate in extracurricular activities like those offered through the Wellness & Recreation Center, you find opportunities for leadership, social and multicultural interaction, camaraderie, physical activity and stress reduction that you can’t find in the classroom. Join the fun – there’s something for everyone!

Funded primarily by your Activities & Services (A&S) Fees as allocated by the FIU Student Government Association (SGA).

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to renovations, we will be closed to the public starting on Monday, May 22, 2017 and re-opening on Monday, June 12, 2017. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for bearing with us as we work to improve your WRC-MMC experience.
