The Cage Athletic and Recreation Center is a focal point of student activity on Berry’s 27,000-acre campus. The 131,000-square-foot facility houses a performance arena that seats nearly 2,000 for varsity athletics, a natatorium with observation seating, an expansive fitness center, racquetball courts and an indoor walk/jog track among its many amenities.

Numerous athletic, intramural and fitness programs are offered within the facility which serve to enrich the lifestyles of our campus community. Athletic department offices, as well as Kinesiology department offices and classrooms, are housed in the Cage Center. The complex is named for alumnus and trustee Steve Cage whose $10 million gift provided support for the Cage Center and other campus priorities.
