Let the workouts begin!  Old Dominion University's much-anticipated new Recreation Center opens Friday, Feb. 27, for tours and clinics, and Monday, March 2, for usage of the facility.

Tours of the center and how-to clinics on equipment usage will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 2-March 1.  Registration is not necessary.

On Monday, March 2, the Recreation Center officially opens for use by ODU students, faculty and staff.

Located in the heart of campus next to the new residence quad, the state-of-the-art Recreation Center is the hub of all sport, wellness and fitness activities at Old Dominion.  The facility features:

  • 15,000-square-foot workout space
  • indoor running track
  • 2-story climbing wall
  • 4 fitness studios
  • 3 racquetball courts
  • hardwood gym
  • multipurpose courts
  • indoor swimming pool
  • locker rooms.

Additionally, the building offers WiFi access and an Einstein's Bagels will open this fall.

Because of construction on the nearby new residence halls, the temporary entrance to the Recreation Center is located on 48th Street, one block east of Powhatan Avenue.
