Renovation of the AFC 2018

AFC Renovation

The IM-Rec Sports Department is passionate about inspiring and motivating the University Community towards better health through active recreation.

AFC Renovation Project

We’ve outlined an ambitious renovation project to breathe new life into UVA’s flagship recreation center.

The 12-month AFC Renovation project kicked off May 19 and will include:

  • Replacing a majority of the athletic flooring
  • Enhancing social and meeting space with new furniture
  • Improved directional signage throughout the building
  • All new lockers and cubbies
  • Additional state-of-the-art fitness equipment

Impact on AFC Access

The vast majority of this project will have no impact on member access to the AFC. We’ve worked hard with our construction partners to minimize facility closures to students and members. Other portions of this project may limit access to certain areas of the facility. Modifications and closures are as follows:

  • May 21-May 31 – Replaced significant portions of the flooring
  • August 13-17 – The whole facility (including Business Office) will be closed
    • Continued renovation work during annual planned closure

We appreciate your patience during this time. We look forward to accommodating you at our other facilities. We are extending the North Grounds Recreation Center's hours to match the AFC's hours during this closure. Memorial Gym will also be open during this time.
