Where is the UConn Adventure Center?

The UAC is located in the Northeast Corner of the Student Recreation Center. We have a separate entrance from the fitness center, across from the UConn Graduate Center building.

Where is the Climbing Center?

The Climbing Center is located on the first floor of the Student Recreation Center. Patrons must first
enter the SRC, by swiping their ID at the main-entrance gates, before proceeding straight through
the main hallway to the Climbing Center.

Where is the Bike Learning Lab?

The Bike Learning Lab is located within the UAC. In addition to being the base-
of-operations for our Cycle Share program, UConn Outdoors also offers a variety of programs here
to help cyclists of all experience levels gain knowledge and skills to enhance their biking activities!
Be sure to register for a program ahead of time (like “Ask a Mechanic Hour” or “Advanced Bike
Maintenance”) and check in with our UAC Attendants to access the Bike Learning Lab.

Our Goal:

  • Knowledgeable instruction
  • Friendly & attentive service
  • Exciting programming
  • Quality outdoor equipment & facilities

Our staff include outdoor professionals, qualified volunteers and fellow UConn students who have prepared through our training system to offer you a fantastic adventure experience.
