San Jose State University Spartan Recreation and Aquatic Center

San Jose, California

The new Spartan Recreation and Aquatic Center serves as a central hub and student destination on campus, comprising a 120,000 sf gymnasium along with a 40,000 sf outdoor aquatics deck supporting two 50-meter pools. Program elements include a weight and fitness center, exercise rooms, rock climbing wall, student lounges and departmental recreation offices. The facility’s adjacency to new primary housing on campus makes it a critical location for more than just fitness and athletics, but as a true wellness destination that promotes accessibility, inclusivity and community for students and the local community as part of their daily routine.
