The new Wellness and Recreation Center has 97,100-square-feet of space and is located adjacent to, and just west of, the current Physical Education Center on the north side of the St. Ambrose campus near its Lombard Street border.

The building, has distinctive half-barrel roof construction that is reminiscent of a 1950s-era field house; and, a largely brick exterior, in keeping with other campus facilities. The facility design features large, light-filled spaces. Numerous windows below the roof line, and some areas with glass walls, gives the interior an open feel and give students great views inside the building and out to the campus.
