Murray State University – Susan E. Bauernfeind Student Recreation and Wellness Center

Murray, KY

Murray State University is among many higher education institutions to capitalize on an aquatic design trend—providing maximum aquatic enjoyment to its entire student population.

  • 5,130 sq. ft. 25-yard fitness pool with five lanes and an open swim area for fitness classes
  • Underwater benches and bubble couch
