Jacobs Fitness Center

  • Jacobs Fitness Center Closed

Starting December 16, 2016 the Jacobs Fitness Center will be closed due to the Sports Center building HVAC replacement project. Members will have access to the general lockers rooms and recreational swim in the Reeves Aquatic Center through a temporary front desk located in the Sports Center lobby (near the Bender Arena main doors). Hours will vary so all members are encouraged to check daily the online facility calendar. Cassell Fitness Center will remain open during the project.

 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.
