Xavier University of Louisiana

Student Center/Fitness Center

Project Description:
For the past 15 years, there has been discussion about the possibility of constructing a fitness center. We now have an opportunity to satisfy this great need for the campus community. The proposed Fitness Center will be located near Xavier South and our two largest residence halls, St. Martin DePorres and the Living Learning Center. This facility will have a NCAA regulation-sized basketball court with a curtain wall dividing at half court; this will allow for multiple uses including classes and intramural activities. We will also have offices, lounges, exercise rooms and a dance studio. On the perimeter, we are planning to have cardio machines, stationary bikes and treadmills. The second floor mezzanine will consist of a three-lane walking/running track and additional exercise equipment. The main entrance will face Clark Street, tying into the rest of the south campus buildings. We have demolished the B. Samuels building to clear the space for this new facility.
