CU Denver Wellness Center Feasibility Study

A feasibility study has begun to determine the possibility of a potential CU Denver Wellness Center designed for CU Denver students. Amenities in the Wellness Center concept could include, but are not limited to:

       -Student lounge- a place to relax, study, and                     socialize with other CU Denver students 
       -Large weight room
       -Numerous cardio workout options
       -Large multi-use gym and event space (approx.                 3000 seats)
       -Classroom and workshop space for wellness                     related activities
       -Swimming pool
       -Extra locker rooms for students and Club Sports               athletes
       -Dance studios
       -Demonstration kitchen
       -Indoor track
       -Steam room and/or sauna
       -Rock climbing wall

Here is a video of a POSSIBLE design concept. This video was a marketing tool to let us get to know the consultants; it is not necessarily the process or appearance of the Wellness Center construction that would occur. The CU Denver feasibility study is intended to examine what elements could exist if a CU Denver Wellness Center is funded and built.​


We are looking for CU Denver students, faculty, and staff to participate in focus groups during the first week of September to determine the level of general interest as well as the most pertinent amenities as a part of the CU Denver Wellness Center feasibility study.

**If there is CU Denver student interest in a Wellness Center, it is important to note that the primary funding source would need to be a special student fee. The study would help us determine the viability of such a fee. The study will also help us determining if CU Denver students would be more interested in contributing to a renovation and expansion of the Auraria Events and PE Building, which, if successful, would likely need to be supported by a student fee distributed across Auraria’s three institutions. The study will try to determine if CU Denver students are interested in supporting one project, both projects, or no projects like this. Lastly, the study is meant to determine if faculty and staff are supportive of this project, and if there is enough community interest so that external revenue could also support the construction and operation of CU Denver Wellness Center.
