Raymond B. Preston Health & Activities Center

The Raymond B. Preston Health & Activities Center, on WKU's campus, offers students, faculty, and staff one of the finest recreational sports facilities in the country.  Constructed in 1992, the Preston Center added a new dimension to recreational activities, intramural sports, and informal recreation for the university community.  Many areas of the original facility, including the locker rooms, natatorium, and administrative spaces have been renovated. Additionally, a 14,000 square foot Fitness Center addition was opened in the Spring of 2010.
