About this project
East Campus is experiencing tremendous academic and residential growth. New construction, demolitions and renovations are happening all around...and it’s a good thing as our campus evolves. This means outside recreation space has been shifting around, too. The Nebraska Veterinary Diagnostic Center occupies former sport fields and the parking areas for Massengale Residence Center sit atop former tennis courts.
In the Campus Master Plan, the open space where Burr-Fedde Residence Complex previously stood is designated to bring back outside recreation to East Campus – a purpose-built area serving as hub for student life and social pursuits.
The RWC Recreation Area is to be developed in a two-phase construction sequence; Phase 1 opens in Fall 2018.
Covered parking @ RWC is no longer a drive-thru structure; entry and exit only from the north side.
