Use of the Sports and Health Center Facilities is free for full time students. Highlights of the facility include:
The Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation offers degrees in the fields of athletic training, exercise science, health education, physical education and recreation/outdoor education. The programs are structured to align with current accreditation standards in order to prepare students to meet the entry-level requirements of these different fields. The department has separate laboratories dispersed throughout the Sports and Health Center that support these degree programs. Most of the programs require students to have a field or clinical placement or internship.
The UMD athletic program consists of 16 varsity sports. The men's and women's Bulldog hockey programs, are the only UMD sports that play in an off campus facility - the AMSOIL Arena in downtown Duluth. Both compete at the NCAA Division 1 level. Men's tickets are $7 per game for students and Women's games are free. A shuttle is available for transportation. The other teams are aligned with the NCAA Division II and participate in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference.
