Charles Dunn Student Recreation Center

The minute you walk into the Charles D. Dunn Student Recreation Center at Henderson, you’ll see why we think it’s such a big deal. Besides the fact that it’s flat-out gorgeous, the first thing you’ll feel is the energy. It’s everywhere.

The Student Recreation Center was opened in 2009, and is a hub of student activity and campus life.

The facility features:

  • A Elevated Jogging and/or Walking track
  • A 12-foot Climbing/Bouldering wall
  • State-of-the-art Weight Training, Cardio, and Fitness Equipment
  • 3 Basketball & Volleyball courts and 1 Indoor Soccer Court
  • A Aerobics Studio
  • 2 Full-service Locker Rooms
  • 3 Student Lounging Areas


Henderson’s wildly popular Intramural Sports Program also operates out of the Student Recreation Center, as does our Outdoor Recreation Program, which offers equipment rental whenever you feel like channeling your inner outdoorsman (or outdoorswoman).
