Renovation Updates

The Campus Recreation and Wellness Center Aquatic facilities closed in December 2014 to undergo a multi-million dollar renovation to the space; it re-opened to the university community in July 2015. The project was all-inclusive and included upgrades that will help the Aquatics facilities to be more sustainable. Below is a list of just a few highlights of what was accomplished during the renovation:

  • Complete replacement of all filters, pumps, motors, piping and chemical feed systems on all bodies of water
  • Addition of UV technology to both pools and spas
