Student Recreation Services - Wichita

Students on the Wichita Campus have access to Student Recreation Services at any of the Greater Wichita YMCA locations.  The YMCA has nine locations around the Greater Wichita area, six in Wichita, one in Andover, one in Newton and one in El Dorado.  Wichita-based pharmacy students may utilize any of these locations.  Addresses, directions, hours of operation for each location and a complete listing of YMCA services and programs can be found at ymcawichita.org.

Greater Wichita YMCA personnel will be on-campus during orientation and/or the first week of classes during the fall semester to assist students with YMCA registration.  If for some reason a student is unable to attend the on-campus registration session, they may register at their convenience at any of the Greater Wichita YMCA locations. 

Should students have questions about student recreation services, please contact the KU School of Pharmacy-Wichita Campus Student Services Office at 316-293-3500 or Shannan Broughton, Corporate Membership Director for the Greater Wichita YMCA, at (316) 219-9622 Ext. 5573 or shannan.broughton@ymcawichita.org.
