Recreation & Fitness

The Powerhouse

Student union, recreation center, and athletics facility.

The newly renovated powerplant now houses our student union and athletic center. It’s where our artists, athletes, and every one of our multi-hyphenate Beloiters in between meet, eat, play, and practice.

The 120,000-square-foot facility features theater, classroom, and meeting spaces. There’s also a running track, 8-lane competition swimming pool, and plenty of other areas to work out and rest up.
