Located on the south side of MSU’s campus in Bozeman, Montana, the new Student Wellness Center and its surrounding site create a best-of-class wellness center, encompassing allied departments from across the campus. The new building serves as a transformational space to support the mental and physical well-being of students and serves as the heart of student life on MSU’s south side.
“Crucial to student success, the wellness center will create a one-stop-shop for MSU students to find health, recreation, academic, and athletic resources. This multi-functionality eliminates barriers to use, supports programming, and promotes access for each student’s unique campus journey,” said RDG Architect Tom Ohle, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, WELL AP.
Encompassing 150,000 square feet of new construction, the wellness center houses gymnasia and fitness spaces, outdoor programs, climbing and bouldering walls, a hybrid pool, and remodeled group exercise, locker rooms, and offices. University Health Partners, which provides medical, dental, counseling, and health advancement services will be co-located in the facility, along with offices and labs for the Health and Human Development Department. The center is scheduled to be completed in 2023.
