E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center


The new E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center is envisioned as a hub of campus fitness and recreation, offering areas for weightlifting, training and a multitude of other fitness classes and activities, plus an indoor 1/8th mile running track. Three full-court gymnasiums will be utilized for basketball and other indoor multi-use court sports. Wiegand Fitness will be available to students, as well as faculty and staff.

Wiegand Fitness will be constructed in the parking lot north of the Brian Whalen Parking Complex and will border North Virginia Street. Located in proximity to the Joe Crowley Student Union and Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center, in the University's student-centered mid-campus.

Wiegand Fitness anticipated construction start date is early-summer 2015 and the projected opening date is early 2017.
