Quinnipiac University Recreation encompasses a variety of activities and locations, including: club sports, intramural sports, an eSports lab, three fitness centers, aerobic classes, open recreation and special events on all three campuses. Recreation also serves as one of the larger employers of undergraduate students on campus. Positions are available as intramural staff members and fitness center attendants. 

Club Sports 

The university recognizes 21 club sport teams. They compete against other universities without the time commitment of an NCAA Division I team.

Teams are student-led and allow for leadership opportunities through elected positions including president, vice president and treasurer.

Each team typically announces its tryout process before or at the Quinnipiac Involvement Fair each fall.
