The Health and Recreation Center (Building M)  offers a unique fitness and recreational experience for students, faculty, staff, and the community. The newly renovated 135,000 sq. ft. facility offers an aquatics center, a four-court field-house, a suspended jogging track, fitness studios, cardio/strength areas, a 10,000 square foot fitness center, numerous fitness programs, and the NCH outpatient care center. The building is also home to the Harper Hawks Athletics, Kinesiology, and Health Education.

The $38 million renovation of the outdated, 38-year-old facility is the result of a partnership with the Palatine Park District and Northwest Community Healthcare. Under the partnerships, the park district contributed $9 million toward the renovation, paid a share of the building’s operating costs, operates the indoor pool, and will provide adult fitness and recreation programs.

The aquatics center offers:

5,700 sq. ft. Renovated Stretch Competition Pool

  • Six 25-yard or 25-meter lap lanes
  • One 1-meter and three 3-meter diving boards
  • Water depths 4 ft. to 13 ft.
  • ADA access with two pool lifts
