Soon to be Sweating at New Student Life Center

George S. Eccles Student Life Center

The long awaited George S. Eccles Student Life Center is almost complete! On Jan. 12, this state-of-the-art building will be open its doors to multiple gymnasiums, climbing walls, an indoor pool and large areas for cardio and weight training. The 172,000-square-foot facility will also house a meeting space for students and food services, and will be the new home for the Outdoor Adventure Program.

With the opening of the new Student Life Center, there will be a brief interruption in Campus Recreation‘s offerings during the winter break. The Field House will officially close on Dec. 31. All court areas and the track will be available through that date, but cardio and strength equipment will be removed Dec. 8-12. Fitness classes and personal training will end on Dec. 8. The HPER Complex and Pool will be open until Jan. 4.

The Outdoor Adventure Program will continue to operate at its current location, near the mouth of Red Butte Canyon, through Dec. 31. It will then close Jan. 1-11 and re-open on Jan. 12.

Here are some behind-the-scene shots of the Student Life Center:

    New students center presents itself just great. I strongly believe that it will enrich our community, by helping us integrate better and faster, as well as make us even more proud of our great university! :)

    Wow. Nice facility. And that’s a really neat outdoor track next to the facility. It’s too bad they put up barriers so you can’t run on the inside lanes. So much for serving the public.

    • dien0338

      The track was built by the athletic department with donor funds and is used for the track student athletes for their training. The inside lane gates help protect the track from getting worn out too quickly and protecting the valuable gift from the McCarthy family. The public is lucky to have ANY access to it.

        I understand the purpose of the barriers. Interpret how you will. “We believe that students and people of all ages need to have a place to run and jump and play games,” said Phil McCarthey.

        • dien0338

          Well said. Luckily we get lanes 4-9 and the entire field to do that running and jumping.

          • 22spb

            how often do you or anyone else on the campus use lanes 4-9 and the field? Whenever I go by, typically in the morning, nobody is using it. My point is that the track might wear out 10 days earlier by letting the 10 people who care about running the inner lanes use it.

    Where can I make a suggestion for new pieces of workout equipment? As one of the best ski Universities in the US, it would seem fitting for the U to have a few skier’s edge machines ( in the cardio section. I’ve loved working out at the field house, and this would make the student life center even better!

    Will Employees with the University of Utah Hospital have access to this new facility?

    Hmmm. With a title like, “Soon to be Sweating at New Student Life Center” you would think that there might be a sauna area in the new center. Wouldn’t that be fantastic!
