NJIT Wellness Center Opens

Congratulations to Dr. Joel Bloom and the entire NJIT community on the grand opening of the university’s spectacular new Wellness & Events Center on the Newark campus. The 200,000 sq. ft. multipurpose athletic center was officially opened on Friday night, November 10, in time to host NJIT’s men’s basketball team’s Saturday opener against Wagner. The WEC features a 25-meter swimming pool, a 10,000-square-foot turf space for intramural and intercollege play,  a 3,500-seat sports arena, and a 5,700-square-foot fitness center for both the students and student athletes. The WEC is designed to be integrated into student life and to create a new focal point for the campus. It includes a 30-foot wide promenade for socializing on its eastern side facing Tiernan Hall. A 52-foot high glass-walled front overlooks the new soccer field and gives the campus a view inside.
