Built in 1989, the Student Recreation Center is available to all students, faculty, and staff at William & Mary, and features a gymnasium, aerobic workout equipment, free weights, a swimming pool, racquetball courts, squash courts, and outdoor facilities. It was built to replace the aging Blow Gym.
A renovation project, completed in Fall 2006, reconfigured and expanded space for intramural sports, personal fitness/wellness activities and sports club activities. The recreation center added a number of new amenities including a rock climbing wall, a juice bar, a multipurpose court, and a massage room, among others.
The recreation center was the first building on campus to be recognized as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) structure in March 2007. All of the new buildings constructed on campus since the recreation center have all been LEED certified structures.
