New Student and Wellness Recreation Center

Those on campus have seen the new EKU Recreation and Wellness Center rise up from the site of the recently-demolished Todd and Dupree buildings, located in the center of campus adjacent to Powell Plaza.  This building, along with the new Case Dining Hall and the soon-to-reopen renovated Powell Student Center will greatly enliven this campus area.  The new Rec Center will include the following features:

  • Three side-by-side basketball courts surrounded by a running track
  • A large climbing wall and bouldering area
  • A multi-use gym area for indoor soccer and other sports
  • A large cardio and strength area on two floors overlooking Powell Plaza
  • A recreational pool complete with a vortex pool, spa and sauna
  • Three racquetball courts
  • Several activity and classroom spaces for various types of activities, including dance and yoga
  • An elevated outdoor terrace for classes and activities

The new Rec and Wellness center will also feature a pedestrian walkway connecting the turnabout at Park Drive with the remaining drive in front of Palmer Hall, improving the pedestrian experience on campus
