Jacksonville State dedicated its state-of-the-art Recreation and Fitness Center in January 2018. The new building is a game-changer for the university, both as a recruitment tool for future students and as a hub of campus life for current students. 

The 101,000 sq. ft. facility has a glass exterior, four gymnasiums, a weight and fitness area, a wellness center, an elevated walking track, racquetball courts, an indoor pool with four lap lanes and a shallow outdoor pool, a 42-foot rock climbing wall, group exercise studios and locker rooms, as well as a lounge area where students can congregate between classes. Aquatic amenities include:

4,250 sq. ft. Indoor Recreation Pool

·         Four 25-yard lap lanes

·         Two stair entries

·         Underwater benches

·         Water basketball

·         Vortex

       200 sq. ft. Spa

The project completed ahead of schedule and under budget amid extraordinarily challenging circumstances, including a devastating E-3 tornado that struck the campus during construction, severely damaging 23 buildings and affecting 50 more.
