The entire facility has undergone an extensive remodeling and facelift, and now includes group-fitness studios and education spaces. The top floor gives access to the West Gym and the existing Student Recreation Center-West.

The RWC builds on HSU’s commitment to student well being. Other facilities and programs include Center Activities, the Club Sports and Intramural program, the Student Recreation Center, the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center in Eureka and the Student Health Center. students rock climbing on indoor wall

“The Recreation and Wellness Center enhances the HSU experience through dynamic and inclusive recreation, through our fitness and wellness program to promote healthy living and through the development of the social and leadership skills necessary for student success,” says Dave Nakamura, executive director of the University Center, which oversees the new facility. The center primarily offers services for current students, however programs are open to staff, faculty, alumni and community members.
