Wellness Center at Read Hall


Spelman College – Wellness Center at Read Hall

Designed in association with

Cannon Design

The Wellness Center at Read Hall provides functional, flexible, and inspiring spaces for physical education, wellness, fitness, recreation, and intramural activities. The new facility was completed before fall semester of 2015 and replaced the existing Read Hall facility, located on the historic campus Oval.  The new facility was designed to foster the development of life-long fitness skills for students, faculty, and staff. The project included approximately 53,000 square feet of space on two levels. The program includes a new performance gymnasium, four-lane swimming pool, wellness classroom and teaching kitchen, an indoor track, locker space, administrative offices, and four multi-purpose rooms for dance, yoga, spin, and other fitness activities. Spelman College’s landmark decision to eliminate their Division III Athletic Program in favor of a Wellness Revolution to support their entire student body is celebrated in this facility. Awarded LEED Gold, The Wellness Center at Read Hall fully supports their comprehensive sustainable initiative.
