Sports & Recreation at Olin
Olin recognizes that there is a direct relationship between one’s well-being, learning and regular exercise. In order to support these relationships Olin has established a variety of programs and resources that are intended to promote short-term and long-term opportunities for staying physically active.
Residence Hall Gyms
There are three exercise rooms in the residence halls; two in West Hall and one in East Hall. In West Hall there is a cardio room and a fitness room with free weights, mirrors and mats for stretching. There is a separate room with sports equipment. Students may borrow sports equipment but should return it to the equipment room immediately after practice or a workout. East Hall has a gym with several cardio machines and a weight machine that has upper and lower body exercises.
Intramural Sports and Babson Facilities
Olin enjoys a unique relationship with Babson and Wellesley that includes access to Babson’s athletic facilities and Babson’s and Wellesley’s intramural leagues. Babson’s athletic facilities include indoor and outdoor basketball courts, an indoor swimming pool, an indoor track, an indoor ice skating rink, exercise classes, cardio equipment, free weights, weight machines and other exercise equipment.

Club Sports and Competitive Teams
Olin has two competitive sports teams, the Olin Soccer team in the fall and the Olin Ultimate team in the spring. These teams are coached with regular practices, tournaments and games. The soccer and ultimate teams field men’s, women’s and co-ed teams, depending on student interest and participation. Olin runners regularly participate in training runs and races including the Boston Marathon.
