UMC – Wellness Center Pre-design
The two-story addition wraps around the existing Knutson Center and Lysaker Hall or Sports Complex. The unique feature of the facility is that the Office of Admission adjoins the Wellness Center/Sports Complex. Originally wellness facilities were intended to improve students’ health, but have also become a marketing tool for increasing student enrollment and retention.
The addition includes an intramural gymnasium with 3 high-school sized courts and a suspended overhead 3-lane jogging/walking track; locker rooms for varsity teams, visiting varsity teams, students and faculty, trainers room, power lifting room, health assessment rooms, cardio, free weight and strength equipment areas, two aerobics rooms, offices for 15 athletic administration and faculty, three classrooms, Hall of Fame area, office of admission and a second floor “green” roof adjacent to the upper lounge and faculty offices.
