UW Tacoma and YMCA of Pierce & Kitsap Counties Student Center Grand Opening in Downtown Tacoma

Downtown Tacoma is excited for the grand opening of the new University of Washington Tacoma campus expansion, the University Y Student Center at the beginning of the New Year. This expansion was made possible by the partnership between the University of Washington Tacoma and the YMCA of Pierce & Kitsap Counties.

This new recreation facility was created with the community and student input that includes a 73,000 square-foot multi model space for a full-size gym including weight and cardio equipment, basketball court, indoor track, and space for fitness programs, and student events.

The University Y Student Center will serve the YMCA’s growing membership to UW Tacoma students, faculty and staff, as well as all Y-members. It will not be replacing the YMCA health facility on Market and 16th Street, or any of the other seven facilities throughout Pierce and Kitsap Counties. It was built with the intension of adding another convenient location for the YMCA members and allowing for more space for an expanding membership through the South Sound region.

The grand opening will take place on Tuesday, January 6, 2015 beginning at 5:30 p.m. through 8 p.m., at the University Y Student Center, located at 1720 Market Street on the University of Washington Tacoma campus. There will be facility tours, light refreshments, and other special offers available. We are excited to see the new fitness facility built in downtown Tacoma and make a healthy lifestyle more accessible to our residents.
