The new Health and Wellness Center at Alfred University provides a venue for the non-competitive athlete to participate socially and recreationally in athletic activities.

The building, located at the edge of campus, creates an inviting façade for students and visitors, while being respectful to the scale of the nearby residential neighborhood. If the 1960's were about "fitness as work", this building is designed to be about "fitness as play." The building will provide a dynamic "see and be seen" experience, promoting interaction between students and creating social incentives to staying fit. Durable materials and finishes were selected to create a modern aesthetic that is easily maintained and will retain aesthetic quality over time. In addition to a 16,000 square foot gymnasium, the building will house a 1/11 mile elevated track and a 1,500 square foot multipurpose room for activities such as yoga, dance, Pilates, and Zumba. The project is scheduled to be complete in May of 2013.
