Recreation & Fitness

The Powerhouse

Student union, recreation center, and athletics facility.

The newly renovated powerplant now houses our student union and athletic center. It’s where our artists, athletes, and every one of our multi-hyphenate Beloiters in between meet, eat, play, and practice.

The 120,000-square-foot facility features theater, classroom, and meeting spaces. There’s also a running track, 8-lane competition swimming pool, and plenty of other areas to work out and rest up.

Powerhouse celebrated for energy efficiency

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers honored Beloit College’s Powerhouse with the Focus on Energy 2021 Energy Efficiency Excellence Award on Wednesday, September 8. Governor Evers commended the new student hub for its innovative approach to conserving energy and reducing the Beloit community’s carbon footprint.

“I’m always impressed with how important the college is to the city of Beloit and how important the city of Beloit is to the college,” says Governor Evers. “This facility serves as a great example of what can be accomplished when people come together and create something that is both sustainable and special.”
