Open Recreation

“Open Recreation” is the supervised, but unstructured, use of the Saint Leo athletic facilities. A valid Saint Leo ID is required to use the athletic facilities, and sports equipment is available. University Soccer Field and the gymnasium are available in the spring semester.

Check the days and times of open gym and open field for March.


Take the canoes out on the water; hang out on the dock or even fish. Take advantage of the picturesque view and enjoy a little peace and quiet at the lakefront. This is open to students, faculty and staff.

The lakefront is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to 4 p.m.

Ropes Course

The low and high ropes course at Saint Leo University is designed to promote effective communication and teamwork in a group setting, while encouraging individuals to challenge themselves in a safe and friendly environment.

Groups of 12 (or more) can reserve a time for a certified instructor to take them through the low ropes (usually a six to eight hour time frame is required) or the high ropes (usually an eight hour time frame is required). The ropes course is open to students, faculty and staff.

Open climbing hours will begin later in the semester. Check back for hours.
