In order to meet the ever growing and diverse needs of the Butler University student population, Moody Nolan, Ratio Architects, and Counsilman-Hunsaker teamed to design the new indoor Health and Recreation Complex (HRC) located next to the student housing complex.

The 81,250 sq. ft. state-of-the-art recreation facility boasts high-quality amenities, including a natatorium, weight and fitness rooms, indoor running track, and multi-purpose courts.

The aquatic complex embodies the school’s needs and objectives by combining leisure areas and fitness / competitive swimming program spaces. The aquatic center has something for everyone to enjoy including:

  • 25-yard lap pool with six lanes
  • 4,793 sq. ft leisure pool, including a current channel, underwater bubble benches, water volleyball and water basketball
  • 156 sq. ft. whirlpool spa
