The Student Recreation Center is now open. Due to ongoing work on the chillers' mechanical systems, staff will monitor the weather and adjust the building hours if the temperature is unsafe for physical activity.

Aquatics Center

The Aquatics facility at the Student Recreation Center boasts a leisure pool, a lap pool and a whirlpool hot tub! Open during regular Student Recreation Center hours, the Aquatics facilities are a great place to swim a few laps after a long day.

Parking

With an ever-expanding Evansdale Campus and growth of University resources, access to parking has been an ongoing focus for University planners. Several short-term parking lots have been added, including “Short Term 4” adjacent to the Recreation Center. Visit WVU's Transportation & Parking site for up-to-date information.

Some of the most pertinent facts are: 

  • Parking fees will be in effect Monday-Friday 8:00am - 4:00pm.
  • The rate per hour is the same as other surface lots: $1.25/hr.
  • Parking will remain free for the time-being at the Coliseum.
  • Short Term lot 4 near the art museum is also a closer option with a cheaper parking rate.
  • The ParkMobile app and Mountain Line app are two resources that help identify open spaces and alternate transportation.

Amenities
