Designed for Students — With Extensive Input by Students

The multi-purpose facility includes expanded recreational space and equipment, a rock-climbing wall, an upgraded health center, a counseling center with stunning outdoor views and a fuel bar for pre- and post-workout nutritional needs. Outside the building are benches, a fire pit, gardens with native plants, and other inviting spaces.

A Center for Wellness — For Body and Mind

The Recreation and Wellness Center, designed by DesignLab/S3, makes health and wellness a prominent feature of campus with the addition to the existing Athletic and Recreation Center on the west and south facades, a courtyard and terrace garden, and a new campus open space to the south.

The counseling center provides welcoming spaces and broader access to clinical services and mental health care. Our state-licensed counselors are committed to supporting the intellectual, emotional and social development of all Quinnipiac students.

The RecWell prioritizes well-being of our students and our community.

A Focus on Sustainability

We love our LEED certified building

The Recreation and Wellness Center is recognized by U.S. Green Building Council as a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Building. The certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement. To earn the designation, the building was constructed with an eye toward global stewardship and preserving the planet.

In addition to the other amenities, there is a dedicated athletic training space for club sports, wide views of Sleeping Giant State Park and four fitness studios, including one with a retractable wall for outdoor workout opportunities. It’s all part of a broader commitment to healing and sustainability at Quinnipiac.
