Student Recreation Center
Construction is well underway for the new three-story 191,000 square foot student recreation center slated to open in July 2019. Programming started in October 2015 with considerable input from students, staff and the Student Advisory Committee.
The planned facility will include approximately 30,000 square feet of fitness space, a four-court gymnasium, two multipurpose activity courts, an indoor running track, an aquatics center with a 25-meter pool and a recreational pool, a climbing center, racquetball courts, an outdoor recreation center and functional training and multipurpose rooms for use by the students and the UConn community.
The new recreation center located on Hillside Road across the street from the UConn Bookstore. The project conforms to Connecticut High Performance Building Code regulations, is registered as a LEED Gold project and is seeking SITES certification.
