Sett Recreation

Climb, bowl, shoot pool, play games, and hang out at The Sett, the center of recreation at Union South.  Sett Recreation is located on the lower level of The Sett Pub.  Play until your heart is content, then head upstairs to grab a bite, hang out and watch all of your favorite sports at The Sett Pub.

Ping Pong tables are now open outside of Union South on the Johnson street side! Rent paddles & balls for FREE from Sett Rec, Prairie Fire, or the Sett Pub.
