- The Natatorium will not reopen before its demolition in mid-August. The new Nat is expected to open in 2023.
- Ogg Hall Fitness Center is now closed as we prepare to open the Nick. We are grateful to University Housing for allowing us to offer this space as a satellite facility during construction.
Expected to open in 2020, the Nick will be home to 30,000 square feet of fitness space, 8 courts, 5 studios, an Olympic size pool, and more. The name of the facility honors the late Albert "Ab" Nicholas, his wife Nancy, and their family.
Officially known as the Camp Randall Sports Center, the Shell is home to our ice rink and the campus’ only indoor track while the Nick is under construction.
Nestled in the center of campus, this facility and its studios serve as practice space for several sport clubs. Lathrop Hall is a shared facility and does not house open rec activities for Rec Well members.
