The UW recreational sports fitness facilities expansion project consists of a four-level, 100,000-square-foot addition to the existing 200,000-square-foot Intramural Athletics Facility.

The new addition will be situated on the northeast corner of the existing IMA building and will include a running track on the mezzanine level; two new basketball courts and two administrative suites on the third level; various fitness rooms, a deli/café and other meeting rooms on the second level; and various fitness rooms on the first level.

A standout feature is a three-story, state-of-the-art rock climbing gymnasium that is being constructed in the northeast corner of the addition.

The existing facility will receive an extensive 22,000-square-foot facelift and remodeling effort that will incorporate life safety upgrades and new finishes throughout the public areas to match those of the new addition.

Finally, the 185,000-square-foot Recreational Sports Program Field No. 3 located immediately to the north of the existing IMA facility is being completely remodeled, with the three fields receiving a new synthetic sports surface, new field lighting system and new fencing for the fields and adjacent tennis courts.
