New $41 million Student Recreation Center Debuts at Cal State Fullerton

Cal State Fullerton’s Associated Students Inc. welcomed campus and community members April 9 to the official debut of the $41 million Student Recreation Center.

The event featured campus and student leaders and the unveiling of a cornerstone plaque commemorating the building’s completion, as well as tours of the 95,000-square-foot center, which features a 38-foot-tall indoor rock-climbing wall, a three-lane elevated indoor jogging track, three basketball courts, a two-level 15,000-square-foot cardio/strength training area, two racquetball courts, three multipurpose rooms for drop-in fitness classes, a dedicated spin studio and outdoor swimming pool.

The facility boasts more than 100 pieces of fitness equipment, as well as a big-screen multimedia cardio studio — the first ever on a Cal State campus.

As well as providing an exciting new venue for Cal State Fullerton students, the Student Recreation Center also is a model of “green” building design and construction. The facility won the CSU/UC Best Overall Sustainable Design Award at the sixth annual Sustainability Conference for California campuses in 2007. Among its design strategies, the project emphasizes the benefits of daytime lighting and the use of sustainable and recycled materials in the building’s construction. The new center also includes resource-saving fixtures throughout, such as low-flow showerheads and energy-saving lighting.

The overall construction cost of the Student Recreation Center was borne entirely through campus-based student fees, with no state funds used to either build the center or finance ongoing operations.

The Student Recreation Center allows members of the campus community to participate in fitness and leisure activities, such as noncredit exercise classes and intramural sports. The center also serves as a community development center, where students can spend time outside of classes with their peers, campus staff and faculty members, administrators and Titan alumni.

The Student Recreation Center is located on the west side of the Cal State Fullerton campus at 800 N. State College Blvd., Fullerton. It is near the Titan Student Union and the intersection of Dorothy Lane and State College Boulevard.
