Noyes Community Recreation Center

Welcome to the social hub of Cornell's West Campus!

The Noyes Community Recreation Center provides a variety of recreation programming for students living on and around West Campus. Students from residential houses, fraternities, sororities, co-ops, program houses and off-campus apartments can work out in the gym, study or simply hang out with friends in the lounge, play games and attend other events. Noyes Community Recreation Center is open to the entire Cornell community (staff, faculty, retirees, spouses/partners) as well.

In addition to a lounge, game area and a convenience store, Noyes houses a regulation-size basketball court with lines for volleyball and badminton, a full-scale fitness center, a 30-foot-long bouldering wall, and a multi-purpose room for group fitness, club practices and other recreational activities. The outdoor basketball court has amphitheater seating for spectating and special events.
