What's the Plan for the New KREC?

We are excited to announce KREC is relocating to a new and improved dedicated fitness center to be located in northwest end of Parking Lot 36. Some of the new and exciting features will include: 


  • Just steps away from the current location maintaining the benefit of campus walking distance, BruinBus shuttle stop at Lot 36, and many bicycle options
  • New floor layout to feature a 30% increase in cardio exercise equipment with new treadmills and ellipticals
  • An approximately 70% increase in strength training options with additional equipment including squat racks and barbells
  • New highly requested items such as heavy punching bags and multi station pull up bars
  • Expanded functional training zone with a large courtyard
  • Improved locker rooms, social areas, and meeting spaces
