New workout spaces prepared as SERF to close Aug. 18
You have only a few more weeks left to enjoy a workout at the Southeast Recreational Facility (SERF) before it closes permanently at the end of the day on Aug. 18. The closure comes as part of the Rec Sports Master Plan to build larger recreational facilities to accommodate the fitness needs of a growing campus. Construction is expected to take two years, with a new facility scheduled to open during the 2019-2020 school year. The SERF project will increase fitness space from 8,500 square feet to 30,400 square feet at the SERF site, double the number of full-size basketball courts from four to eight, add four multi-purpose rooms, and increase the pool size from 16 to 29 short-course lanes. Other workout spaces will be available on campus until the project is completed.
