Community Activities


The goal of the Community Activities Program is to support the growth and richness of the University of San Diego community. Social interaction and community connection is enhanced through the offering of activities that attract a large number of USD community member participants.

The program focuses both on campus life and off campus life activities for residents and commuters of the University community and is open to USD students, faculty, staff, alumni, and parents of USD students unless designated specifically for a particular group.

Pick Up Sports

Looking for an informal but structured activity? For our Pick-Up Sports program, Campus Recreation will supply an IM official on certain days for certain sports (see table below). Just drop by the activity of your choice and sub in or bring a team to sub in. Each officiated activity game will have a finish score. When that score is reached a new game with challenge players/teams will sub in. Free to all IM registered participants. Others must be USD students/staff/ or faculty, present a USD ID and sign our release of Liability form. If the sport is non-officiated, just stop on by to play a little pick-up!

Campus Recreation and the Wave House Athletic Club are joining forces to offer our off campus USD community: fitness classes, a full service fitness center, recreational activities and social opportunities.

This off campus Torero zone located in South Mission Beach by the roller coaster and on the ocean has ample parking and is close by for many of the USD off campus community members.
