The Western Student Recreation Centre is a state-of-the-art facility that opened in 2009 and provides a number of services to meet the diverse fitness and recreation needs of all Western students. The 160,000-square-foot facility – one of the largest of its kind at a Canadian university – was opened in part through the largest student donation at a Canadian school in history.
Located adjacent to the Thompson Recreation and Athletic Centre, the Western Student Recreation Centre consists of a 52-meter competition size swimming pool (at the time the largest of its kind in Canada), facilities for racquet sports, several gymnasiums, along with a weight training room and cardio room.
