E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center

E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center


The new E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center will be a four-story facility offering more than 100,000 square feet of multi-use space for fitness and recreation. It 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, the E. L. Wiegand Fitness Center is envisioned as offering multiple fitness areas for weightlifting, training and a multitude of other fitness classes and activities, plus an indoor, 200 meter, 1/8th mile running track. Three full-court gymnasiums will be utilized not only for basketball, but also other indoor multi-use court sports. It is estimated to open in late 2016 and will be available to students, as well as faculty and staff.
