Wellness + Recreation Facility
A Culture of Wellness
Embodying the Jesuit philosophy of cura personalis, or “care for the whole person," Marquette’s Wellness + Recreation facility will create synergies between the campus’s recreation and wellness programs, which are currently spread across the campus. When complete, the project will nearly double the amount of lounge and recreation space, and provide programming for mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.
The existing recreation building will be reimagined into a transparent, light-filled, and connected space. A three-story wellness tower sits in the core of the facility, connected by a central feature stair. Programming in the wellness tower will include a student medical clinic, counseling center, alcohol and drug recovery program and sexual violence prevention space.
The design will include several flexible, multipurpose spaces to allow for larger group meetings and additional recreation spaces to create strong connections and collaborations between recreation and wellness-focused departments. The first two floors of the building will house campus recreation, with additional recreation spaces extending throughout all levels of the facility. Students will be greeted with a bright, double-height entry experience and lounge space that is physically and visually connected to the recreation center while creating a place to showcase wellness services and programming at the shared entry.
Workshop is designing this project in partnership with HOK.
