Project Amenities

The newly renovated 338,000 sq. ft. recreation center was designed with three glass additions which open up the existing building creating a light-filled atrium. The expanded facility effectively re-uses existing structures and spaces while adding 142,000 sq. ft. of new program space to meet the fitness, wellness and recreation needs of the students. New additions include an aquatic center, a climbing wall, a running track, racquetball courts, and five gyms used for various sports such as hockey, soccer, badminton, volleyball and basketball.

The Recreational Sports Center is pursuing the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification for energy efficient design.
