Start expansion Student Sports Center TU/e
The start of the expansion of the Student Sports Center (SSC) of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) has been festively heralded. A time capsule has been dug into the back of the SSC as a reminder of the expansion. The time capsule contains photos of what the sports center used to look like and impressions of what it will look like in 2024.
In mid-2024, the sports center will be significantly expanded with additional fitness facilities and a renovated canteen. Plans for the expansion started in 2012. The expansion of the sports center became increasingly necessary when the influx of students at TU/e started to increase sharply ten years ago. After years of consultation between various parties, including architects, contractors and Real Estate, an agreement has now been reached. The expansion will take place in the spirit of the original architect Gerrit Rietveld.
After the expansion, there will be a new dojo, body & mind room, four changing rooms, a first aid room and a new fitness room. The old building will become available for other sports. The extension will comprise approximately 2,440 m2.
