Jacobs Fitness Center

  • Welcome to the Jacobs Fitness Center

The Jacobs Fitness Center is a state-of-the-art facility that provides quality health and fitness services to the entire AU community.  The Fitness Center was made possible by a generous donation from William I Jacobs, former Chairman of the American University Board of Trustees and Class of 1966. 

Conveniently located on the first floor of the Sport Center, the Jacobs Fitness Center is the main hub for fitness on campus. Members can also gain access the Reeves Aquatic Center and Bender Arena through the facility. 


For Summer 2016, the Jacobs Fitness Center will be undergoing maintenance. 

Locker Replacement Project (July 23 - August 23 tentatively)

Day-use lockers and shower facilities will  be available within Bender Arena and the Cassell Fitness Center. For locker rental information, click here.
