Diverse sporting spaces are a hallmark of great universities and a gym and swimming complex is a key part of the health and wellbeing strategy for ANU.
The Union Court recreation building will include a 25-metre six-lane indoor pool, 15-metre-by-eight-metre hydro pool and a 24-hour, seven day-a-week gym to help meet community demand for additional facilities.
ANU has grown substantially over the past decade and we now have more than 4,000 staff and 22,000 students, including 5,000 who live on the campus. The residential community around us has also grown significantly in the past decade, and the demand for recreation facilities on our campus is far greater than what we can currently provide with a single gym and recreation centre.
The new facility will expand on our existing sport and recreation facilities, giving students, staff and nearby residents a greater variety of facilities and services, so they can choose what best suits them.
More information to come soon.
