About Us
In the fall of 2007, the 54,000 square foot UCCS Recreation Center opened its doors to students and faculty/staff at the university, at the time the first Leadership in Energy Efficiency and Design (LEED) Gold certified public building in southern Colorado, and only second LEED Gold certified recreation center in the nation. The prestigious LEED Gold certification is awarded by the Green Building Council to facilities meeting strict criteria through a performance rating system that evaluate a facility as a sustainable site, its water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and innovation and  design.

The UCCS Recreation Center is proud to share the following: 
  • Solar thermal panels convert solar energy to heat swimming pool water
  • High efficiency glass and window allow light in while reducing solar heat gain
  • In-place Concrete Form (ICF) walls provide energy efficiency
  • Low chemical paints, adhesives, sealants, and carpets were used during construction
  • Current landscaping reduces need for water
  • A reflective roof minimizes the "heat island" effect
  • Low flow toilet and sink fixtures reduce facility water use by as much as 38 %
  • Heating and cooling systems reduce energy expenditure by as much as 30%
  • Wherever possible, unused construction materials were recycled instead of sent to the landfill
