The STWFC is the best fitness facility I have ever used by far. The equipment is high quality, the facility itself is spacious and versatile, and there is good camaraderie among the early bird regulars, all of which help to create an excellent environment for fitness activities.
George Lampl, Associate General Counsel
While we have loved providing what we feel is an integral service to the University of South Carolina community, the financial stress caused by the pandemic and other factors has required a change to the function of the Blatt PE Center (PEC). The PEC is an auxiliary function and unfortunately is no longer receiving state or University funds or subsidies, and after a significant reduction in funds, is funded primarily by student fees.
With the annual increase in the cost of operation, as well as a continued need to update and upgrade facilities and equipment, to keep the PEC open we must ask our users to contribute to the cost of operation. Over the past three decades the university has faced similar situations several times and services have had to be reduced or eliminated, hours of operation reduced or closed, among other strategies. The hard reality is that we just do not have the funds to subsidize this service any longer.
For as little as $20 per month your membership will allow you access to two facilities, new and expanded fitness offerings, an indoor and outdoor pool, rock wall, outdoor gear rental, and personal training services. We are committed to helping the UofSC community stay active and strong and hope that you will continue to utilize Campus Recreation facilities, programs, and services.
Campus Recreation members MUST use a CarolinaCard to access our facilities.
Students, Faculty, Staff, and Retirees should already have a Carolina Card through the university.
Depending on your desired activities, additional steps may be needed to participate. Please refer to our Activity Area Rules page for any additional questions regarding what you need in specific spaces.
