Athletics & Aquatics Center

Puget Sound is moving forward with plans to improve our athletics facilities with a new aquatics center and major expansion of the fitness center, as part of our commitment to supporting an integrated living and learning experience for our students. Fundraising for the project is ongoing, bolstered by a generous pledge from a group of Puget Sound trustees to match every new gift made by June 30, 2015. The new facilities are slated to open by fall 2016, blending seamlessly with Puget Sound's historic Memorial Fieldhouse.
