Building on the natural draw of the University's primary athletic attraction, Buchart Horn Architects designed the 44,000-SF Campus Recreation Center adjacent to University Field. The Recreation Center serves as a hub of fitness activity and social gatherings for students, athletes, and fans.
The Recreation Center provides a multi-activity gymnasium suitable for basketball, indoor soccer, hockey, volleyball, and badminton. Among the amenities are a nearly 9,000-SF fitness center and weight room, two group fitness studios, two racquetball courts, a two-story rock climbing wall, a synthetic surface full-size gymnasium with curved walls for indoor sports, a suspended jogging track (approximately 1/10 mile), an office suite for recreational services staff, retail space and a snack bar, and locker rooms with Jacuzzis®. The efficient design also includes a synthetic surface half-size gymnasium and running track, seminar rooms, and administrative offices.
