College of Medicine

The Recreation & Wellness Center is proud to welcome the Lake Nona YMCA Family Center as our newest regional partner. The program provides a fitness facility at no additional cost to the nearly 500 students enrolled in the UCF College of Medicine. Lake Nona YMCA Family Center offers an outdoor pool, wellness center, indoor and outdoor basketball courts and group exercises classes in addition to cardio and weight floors.

The majority of College of Medicine students, especially first and second year medical students, live in the Lake Nona area. The Lake Nona YMCA partnership gives those students an opportunity to stay healthy during their rigorous academic schedule. Begin your unlimited FREE membership by taking your UCF student ID and your current class schedule to the YMCA Family Center on Northlake Parkway. This membership remains valid as long as you are currently enrolled at UCF. In addition, the RWC works closely with Student Government Association, Regional Outreach Services and Regional Campus Student Services to offer recreation related programs and activities on the College of Medicine campus as an extension of services offered in Orlando. Each semester this changes based upon demand and new requests. If you have any questions, ideas of what to bring to your campus, or concerns, please contact Regional Recreation at 407-823-2408 or by email at
