Something remarkable is happening at the NCRB.
Our students and members deserve a recreation and fitness center that enlivens their exercise, enhances their experience, builds community and motivates them to keep working hard to achieve their goals.
The renovation of the North Campus Recreation Building, a vital hub of the north campus community, will do just that. The 16-month project will address long-awaited infrastructure needs and modernize the building’s fitness offerings and amenities.
The plan consists of repurposing existing, under-utilized spaces to improve cardio, strength, and group exercise areas, as well as enhancements to the building’s entry. The renovated building will also feature improved racquetball and squash courts, a sauna, a resurfaced running track, new locker rooms that are ADA-accessible and gender-inclusive locker room and restroom. New windows will bring in more light and there will be air conditioning throughout. Infrastructure and architectural updates will also be made in the pool area.
The NCRB will be closing Saturday, May 27, 2017. Coming back strong Fall 2018.
Renovation Prep Work
In preparation for the upcoming renovations to the NCRB it will be necessary to remove some trees from the area around the building. While we regret that this is unavoidable, please know that for every tree that is removed a new one will be planted at locations across our campus. The renovations will begin May 2017, which makes now the best time to start this first phase of the project. Please let us know if you have any questions and watch for further renovation news and updates.
We are currently preparing to open temporary workout options at Bursley Hall (summer 2017) and Pierpont Commons (late summer 2017) on North Campus. We will share updates as soon as we have more information.
IMSB renovation provides the ultimate workout.
After a long-awaited 17-month renovation, the Intramural Sports Building officially reopened on Wednesday, September 28, 2016.
The building, originally built in 1928, boasts many contemporary features while maintaining its historical architectural features. Inside there are more than 200 new pieces of cardio and strength equipment, group fitness and personal training space, racquetball courts, new locker rooms and spacious social lounges.
Fully air-conditioned and flooded with natural light, the Intramural Sports Building has been transformed into a facility designed for a modern workout and place to enjoy with friends and colleagues.
Creating a better experience at the CCRB.
In order to provide our students and members with the best workout experience possible, Recreational Sports has installed over 100 new pieces of cardio and strength equipment at the Central Campus Recreation Building. On the cardio floor this includes treadmills, ellipticals, cross trainers, stepmills, upright bikes, recumbent bikes and indoor cycling bikes. In the strength areas we have added new functional strength equipment, free weight and selectorized equipment.
Other updates to enhance your experience include a new paint scheme to create brighter spaces and the introduction of a new wayfinding system to make it easier to navigate the building.
