Dunn 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 beautiful, the first thing you’ll feel is the energy. It’s everywhere.

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

  • An elevated jogging and walking track
  • A 12-foot climbing/bouldering wall
  • State-of-the-art weight training, cardio and fitness equipment
  • Three basketball and volleyball courts and one indoor soccer court
  • Aerobics studio
  • Two full-service locker rooms
  • Three student lounging areas
  • Outdoor recreation programs/Wilderness Reddies outdoor rentals

Henderson's 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). The Fitness and Wellness Program offers a variety of options including numerous group fitness classes as well as personal training.

The Dunn Center offers a variety of events, activities, competitive and recreational sporting events, outdoor adventure opportunities, fitness and health education and training. We offer opportunities for fun and exciting individual and group activities. Almost all of these events are free and can be worked into your schedule with little effort. Join us as you find your place on campus. We'll show you a fun new way to get involved at Henderson State University.
