Student Recreation Center - Renovation Project
After an extensive study was undertaken to determine the needs of BGSU students, members and other patrons of the Student Recreation Center, the BGSU Board of Trustees voted to approve the renovation project. The Collaborative Inc. has been designing preliminary sketches (see images below), and the $13.4 million renovation begins during the summer of 2013.

The Construction Plan - As of August 15, 2013
**While some facility spaces are closed, every effort will be made to maintain most services (weight-lifting, cardio equipment, group exercise classes, personal training, open gym, etc.) in a different area within the SRC, or in other buildings including the Perry Field House. State of Ohio Building Codes and occupancy restrictions apply. All areas and time lines are subject to change as the project progresses. The construction schedule is expected to take up to 12 months and conclude in August 2014. Alternate entrances are available during construction on the Northwest (near pond) and East (along Mercer Road) side of the facility.
Details regarding building hours and patron access opportunities, including options for the fall semester (August - December), are available on the MEMBERSHIP page.
