Nourishing Mind, Body & Soul

Utah Valley University Student Life & Wellness Center, Orem, Utah

The Student Life Center at Utah Valley University embodies the theme of “mind, body and spirit.” as it combines recreational, fitness and wellness spaces specifically requested by students as well as complementary student-life components. The 162,000 SF building includes space for spinning, aerobics, dance, yoga, cardio, weight training, a climbing wall, outdoor adventure center, court space, a demonstration kitchen, and reflection centers for meditation.

A portion of the building is designed as a social bridge that spans over an existing greenbelt, creating a looped circulation path that supports academic success through student engagement and interactions while offering striking views of the surrounding mountain range.
