Health & Wellness ComplexWHAT: Cerritos College will celebrate the groundbreaking of the new Health & Wellness Complex with a ceremony on April 5.

The approximately $51-million project is funded by Measure G Bond dollars and will be located immediately south of Falcon Gymnasium, along the western edge of the campus' athletic precinct. The 76,000-gross-square-foot facility will centralize functions including fitness labs, cardio workout rooms, training rooms, multi-purpose studios, offices, and the Student Health Center that are currently dispersed around campus, into an accessible, more efficient, state-of-the-art complex.

The complex will consist of five new buildings: Athletic Team Room Building, Dance Building, Fitness Building, Hall of Fame Building, Health Services Building, and Physical Education Building. Construction is expected to be completed in June 2020.

Functioning as the home base for all athletic and physical education activities, the new Health & Wellness Complex will provide a much needed expansion of laboratory, classroom, office and support spaces tailored to the needs of the College’s robust physical education and athletic programs.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 5 at 5 p.m.
