The University of Texas at Arlington Maverick Activities Center

Arlington, TX

Project Description

The Maverick Activities Center at The University of Texas at Arlington was created through the transformation of an existing recreation center. The 180,000-square-foot state-of-the-art recreation and fitness facility added new spaces and renovated entrances, corridors, locker rooms, basketball courts and racquetball courts. A new weight and fitness area, 1/7 mile indoor fitness track, two basketball courts and outdoor courts were added to enhance the center. Student social areas, training and office spaces to accommodate the needs of the campus recreation program were also included.

In addition to providing a modern student athletic activities center, the Maverick Activity Center became the gateway and new focal point of the new east-west axis developed in the UTA master plan. As the new “front door” to the west campus, the Maverick Activity Center has become a magnet for students and a highly successful gateway to the developing student housing quadrant of the campus.
