Fitness Centre- construction will be taking place in the fitness testing room behind the fitness desk. As a result a hoarding wall will be erected on the South wall of the room, narrowing the hallway leading to the free weight area. As a result, Family Change Room #1 will be used by MacEwan Sport and Wellness staff to access their office area. Family Change Rooms 2,3 and 4 will not be affected. The anticipated completion date is June 30.
Second Floor Bathrooms- from July 1 to August 21 construction will be taking place on the male and female washrooms on the second floor of the Christenson Family Centre for Sport and Wellness.
Fitness Studio- due to the upgrade of the air-handling unit in the fitness studio it will be closed from July 1 to August 21, as will the South wing of the second floor of the Christenson Family Centre for Sport and Wellness. As a result, studio value-added and registered classes will be relocated during this time. Visit the Value-Added page or contact the Access Desk at 780-497-5300 for more details.
We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience and understanding.

In 1991, construction began that would transform the former Canadian National rail yards into MacEwan's City Centre Campus. Two short years later, in May 1993, MacEwan Sport and Wellness became one of the first buildings on the new downtown campus to open its doors to students and the public.
In September 2009, thanks to a generous donation from the Christenson family, our building was renamed the Christenson Family Centre for Sport and Wellness.Here at MacEwan Sport and Wellness, we strive to provide quality health and wellness programs and services to students, staff and the public. We are proud to be a part of MacEwan's growth and tradition.
