Student Life

Campus Recreation Center

Students at both Ohio State Mansfield and North Central State College have access to the campus recreational facilities at no cost. Students are able to use the cardio equipment, weight room, and basketball courts for various leisure and fitness activities.

Students can also participate in a variety of intramural sports between students of our campus. You can sign up as a team with a group of friends or as a free agent and we help you find a team. There are two main seasons of intramurals, one in the fall and one in the spring.

There are also opportunities for students, faculty, and staff to participate in free fitness classes. More information can be found on the fitness classes link, by calling 419-755-4041, or stopping by the Campus Recreation Center.

The facility hours: Monday - Thursday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. and Fridays 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.


Coronavirus may cause heart muscle inflammation called myocarditis.

  • Vigorous exercise with myocarditis can increase the risk for heart rhythm problems. We are advising those who have tested positive or been otherwise diagnosed with COVID-19 to avoid high-intensity exercise for a minimum of six weeks, potentially longer, and should be determined in consultation with your physician or healthcare professional.
  • Once viral symptoms resolve, it is important to slowly increase the intensity of your exercise being aware of any heart symptoms.
  • We recommend that before resuming strenuous activity, those recovering from COVID-19 should be cleared by their physician or other health care professional before re-starting high-intensity exercise. If you have heart symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, abnormal heartbeats, near passing out or passing out, please seek medical help.
