About Western Washington University
First opened in 2003, the Wade King Student Recreation Center is a state of the art open recreation fitness and wellness facility that has been created and shaped by the vision and support of Western students. Through a referendum process, students voted to assess themselves a fee to construct and operate a facility that would provide quality recreational space on campus.
The design team of OPSIS/BJSS Duarte Bryant designed a Northwest regional look for both the exterior and interior of the building. The building materials combination of brick, concrete and glass, along with the warmth of wood, were characteristics from each of the existing south campus buildings that were incorporated into the recreation center.The Wade King Student Recreation Center was one of the nation’s first recreation centers designed to meet LEED (Leadership in energy and environmental design) Certification. This building is also the first Western Washington University facility to be LEED Certified.
