IMA Locker Rooms and Pool Renovation Project

UW Recreation is excited to introduce the IMA Locker Rooms and Pool Renovation Project! We value inclusivity, accessibility, and innovation and are pleased to announce that we will be remodeling the current locker rooms and expanding the IMA Pool.

Funding for this project comes from the students themselves through the Services & Activities Fee; we are grateful to them for investing in this project so that future students can enjoy all the benefits, programs, and amenities the IMA and UW Recreation have to offer!

This endeavor has been in the planning stages since 2017. We have polled previous users of the locker rooms including students and members to get their feedback on this project and based on their input, we look forward to having this project begin in the fall of 2021!

The project will allow for those of all genders to comfortably change privately within our locker room setting, and we will be adding a lounge area for students to enjoy before or after a workout. Small, basket-style lockers will be replaced with larger day-use options which will allow users to store more of their clothing and gear while using the IMA. It will also fix some of the existing issues within our current locker rooms such as water damage and aging infrastructure.

Find information on the proposed changes below, provided by the project renovation team Hoffman Construction Company and Opsis Architecture. You can submit a comment about this project at the bottom of the page.

While the IMA Pool and Locker Rooms remain closed through construction*:  There are limited amounts of day use lockers available in the 2nd floor hallway (as you head to Studio 216) and in the 3rd floor hallway (as you head to Studio 316), and cell phone/wallet lockers in the 2nd floor restroom alcove and 4th floor South alcove.

*We continue finalizing the design for this project and have added some updated design renderings below. Locking down the construction completion timeline is in progress and barring any setbacks, we anticipate this project will be completed Summer Quarter of 2023 in time to reopen for Fall Quarter 2023.
