The Student Recreation Center opened on September
15, 2010 to the delight of the student body. UF students had a major
voice in the $1.5 million dollar renovation project as many of the
features and offerings in the recreation center were chosen by the students.
The student recreation center offers a multipurpose
area lined for one basketball court, three volleyball courts, and one
tennis court, a three lane walking/jogging track, a climbing wall, one
racquetball court, video wall area, two billiards tables, two ping pong
tables, equipment check out area, locker rooms, two aerobics areas, a
3,500 square foot weight room, a 5,500 square foot cardio center
overlooking the entire recreation center and a juice bar area.
The new facility has garnered industry honors: In December 2011, the American Sports Builders Association recognized the Student Recreation Center for
excellence in sports facility construction with an award for
outstanding venue in the indoor multi-purpose facility division.
