The Wyant Athletic and Wellness Center will be officially open for use Monday October 20th.

The highly anticipated building was dedicated on October 9th allowing athletes the first glimpse of the new multi-million dollar facility on the North Residential Village.

Following the open house this weekend, the building will begin normal operations and use starting Monday morning at 5:30 AM. This will begin the normal hours of operation for the facility.

The Wyant Center will be open from 5:30 AM to 1:30 AM Monday through Friday and from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM on Saturday’s and Sundays.

The building will be open for all students, not just athletes and will provide much needed space for the health and wellness endeavors of all members of the Case Western Reserve community not only varsity athletes, as was a concern for some students. The Wyant Center  is a three level building housing the DiGeronimo Fitness Center A 4,200-square foot cardio workout facility on the ground level, Steve Belichick Varsity Weight Room a great 4,500-square foot space weightlifting space on the bottom level and a 2,500 square foot lounge for studying and events on the top level with “Stu’s Balcony” overlooking DiSanto Field and the Coach Bill Sudeck Track.

Future information about building policies, services, and reservations will be announced in the coming weeks. However for now the residents on the north end of campus are excited for no longer needing to make the 20 minute walk to the Veale Center.
