The University of North Carolina at Wilmington celebrated the completion of its new Student Recreation Center in April 2013. This 95,400 sq. ft. building offers campus recreation and wellness services aimed to educate students about healthy lifestyles. Construction of this $25 million facility was fully funded through student fees as the state of North Carolina does not permit state tax dollars to go into building recreation areas or facilities.

Recreation components for the LEED-certified facility include a gymnasium with a suspended track, multi-activity courts with retractable spectator bleachers, cardio/weight equipment areas, racquetball courts, a 28 ft. climbing wall, three multipurpose rooms, fitness locker rooms, a wet classroom, and aquatic locker rooms.  The aquatic amenities include:

4,300 sq. ft. Indoor Competition Pool

  • Eight 25-yard lap lanes
  • Three water polo configurations for intramurals
  • Integrated timing system
  • All tile interior finish

1,250 sq. ft. Outdoor Leisure Pool

  • Custom pool in the shape of the UNCW logo
  • Water volleyball and water basketball
  • Underwater hydrotherapy bench seating
  • Aeration jets
  • All tile interior finish
