The new Student Recreation Center will be approximately 58,000 sf and will provide a full-range of recreation facilities that are multi-faceted and appeal to a wide array of students, both as drop-in activities and organized, scheduled programs. Key components include recreation program offices, a two-court gymnasium that will support basketball, volleyball and badminton, an elevated jogging track, climbing wall and bouldering area, outdoor program storage and resource center, two multipurpose rooms for dance, fitness and martial arts, a 6,000 sf weight and fitness training area, locker rooms and storage.

The project is planned to be a LEED Gold certified design, going beyond the Governor’s order mandating sustainable public facilities. The Center is planned to incorporate a number of innovative technologies to reduce the building’s impact on the environment. Natural ventilation, sun shading, eco roofs, rain water collection, displacement air systems, thermal mass structural system, sustainable materials and many other unique features have been programmed for the facility. Additionally, these approaches will also reduce long-term operational costs, thereby enhancing the financial sustainability of the Center.
