Teaching and Research Facilities

facilities

The Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education (KNPE) is fortunate to have available within the department and across the university campus a wide range of teaching and research facilities with state-of-the art equipment. Anderson Hall is the primary teaching and research facility, although classes are also taught in Evans Field House, Gabel Hall, and Huskie Stadium. The majority of the faculty maintain offices in Anderson Hall, which is the administrative center for the department. The comprehensive dance faculty (comprised of faculty in KNPE and the Department of Theatre Arts-Dance) are located in Gabel Hall and there are additional offices in Evans Field House.

Anderson Hall

Anderson Hall is a multi-purpose facility containing two large gymnasiums and several general activity areas; swimming pool; weight room; two dance studios; five classrooms, four of which are equipped as SMART classrooms; faculty and staff offices; and service areas. Several well-equipped research facilities are also located in Anderson Hall, including biomechanics, exercise physiology, motor development, neuromuscular, and film analysis labs. The Athletic Training program has a treatment room in Anderson Hall for student clinicals. A computer lab is provided for use by graduate assistants. Anderson Hall also houses the human anatomy laboratory, which is scheduled and staffed by the Department of Biology. Outdoor classroom space includes several tennis courts, two softball diamonds, and open space for soccer and football.

Evans Field House

Evans Field House is located at the intersection of Annie Glidden Road and Lucinda Avenue. Although it is a bond revenue facility and houses the intercollegiate athletics administrative offices and coaching staff, the department has retained office and activity space in that building. Available as class instructional spaces are a basketball floor, track, wrestling room, and several classrooms. KNPE is given priority scheduling for this facility from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Gabel Hall

Gabel Hall is located on Annie Glidden Road south of Evans Field House and houses several activity areas that are maintained and scheduled by KNPE. Available as class instructional spaces are several dance studios, a swimming pool, and weight room. The comprehensive dance faculty is also officed in Gabel Hall.

Huskie Stadium

Huskie Stadium is scheduled as the teaching location for KNPE's gymnastics classes.
