The new George S. Eccles Student Life Center will provide a greatly improved resource for student life and recreation needs.  This state-of-the-art building includes multiple gymnasiums, climbing walls, an indoor pool, and large areas for cardio and weight training.  The building will also house a meeting space for students, food services, and will provide a new home for the Outdoor Recreation Program.

This visually stunning and well-designed space also offers innovation in energy efficiency.  The University of Utah is pursuing the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for this project.
