Tennessee Tech University Student Recreation Center

Cookeville, TN


The new 163,000 sq. ft. Student Recreation Center was designed to be the new campus “front door” attracting prospective students while serving current students and faculty. The design fosters an inviting environment for wellness by creating spaces that combine independent and group recreation together to meet the needs of all users.

Included in the Recreation Center is an indoor pool, designed to create opportunities for social interaction. Lap lanes are provided for exercise and programmed activities, and the whirlpool spa invites relaxation and socializing.

The facility also includes fitness and weight spaces, a climbing wall in a two-level space, as well as racquetball courts, lockers, classrooms, training rooms, a gym, dance studio, a wellness and nutrition area, offices, and large group exercise areas.

One of the most unique features is a one-fifth mile jogging track that weaves through the entire complex and vertically slopes a full story. The result is a dynamic walking and jogging track that is fully accessible and challenging.
