When construction on the Wellness Center at University Campus is completed in Fall 2021, it will be a physical representation of Saint Leo’s mission, serving students and the greater community in mind, body, and spirit. The center, located on the west end of campus, will provide a variety of features, making it a one-of-a-kind building and possibly the envy of other colleges and universities.
Sitting 17 feet from the ground, the patio and pool deck will offer a 180-degree view of Lake Jovita.
The pool will offer two lap lanes, an area to play volleyball and basketball, and a shallow area for lounging. It will be the largest infinity-edge pool at any university or college in Florida.
A cafe will feature healthy options, including smoothies, salads, wraps, and snacks. An outdoor poolside barbecue and seating area will include a large gas grill and firepit.
Mind, Body, and Spirit
Students will be able to receive services from University Ministry, Counseling & Prevention Services, and Recreation, in addition to routine medical care through a community health care provider.
The fitness area on the second floor will provide cardio equipment, free weights and machines, as well as a dance studio with a variety of scheduled class programming.
At the front of the building on the first floor, a community health care provider will offer services to Saint Leo students, employees, and potentially the greater community.
A large multi-purpose gymnasium overlooking the lake boasts an indoor walking track, and it can be converted for a variety of events—from basketball games and meetings to wedding receptions and formal galas.
