At the heart of student life are the Cregger Athletic Center and Colket Campus Center. Our newest facility, the Cregger Center, houses a performance gymnasium; indoor track; Office of Athletics; and fitness center; as well as classrooms, faculty offices and labs for the Health and Human Performance Department. You will find dining options, the campus store, the mail room, Student Activities Office and other student organizations inside the Colket Center.

Bringing athletics, recreation, community engagement and academics together under one roof, the 155,000-square-foot Cregger Center is Roanoke's newest building.

The two largest facilities inside the Cregger Center are the performance arena and the Kerr-Cregger field house. The arena seats up to 2,500. The field house contains a 200-meter indoor track, which is uncommon in this part of the country. It can also be used for large events such as guest speakers.

The Belk Center overlooks Kerr Stadium and the Blue Ridge Mountains, so it would be difficult to find a fitness center with a better view (or better equipment, for that matter).

The Health and Human Performance Department and their more than 200 students call the Cregger Center their home. Faculty offices, two classrooms, the athletic training clinic and the Health and Human Performance lab are all housed within the Cregger Center.

The Colket Campus Center and Sutton Commons are Roanoke's premier meeting and dining facilities, and they serve as the gathering place for both the Roanoke community and off-campus guests. The Colket Center provides offices for the Campus Activities Board, a group of student volunteers who, in addition to the Colket Center staff, produce cultural, social, recreational and educational programs.
