Wellness Center

The $6.5 million Wellness Center is a modern 19,000-square-foot facility east of Cushing Coliseum. The center opened Aug. 1, 2014 to students and includes program and research space, in addition to a large fitness center and rock climbing wall.

The fitness center has an impressive 48 pieces of cardio equipment including treadmills, elliptical machines, ARC trainers, bikes, row machines, and stair steppers. In addition, it includes a dedicated light lifting area consisting of motion-assisted machine lifts and a heavy lifting area consisting of free weights, squat racks, chest press benches, and a smith machine.

The Wellness Center features the Physical Activity and Wellness Lab, which allows students to better apply what they’re learning in the classroom. The Wellness center features a demonstration kitchen, which is used during wellness and nutrition classes. The space is also used for community-based programming.

All of our wellness facilities are available to current UNK students, faculty and staff. Faculty and staff interested in purchasing a membership can stop by the Campus Recreation office located within the Wellness Center or call 308-865-1732.
