The Harold Alfond Athletics and Recreation Center for Colby College, Maine opened late 2020. The new center is rooted in the College’s guiding ethos and values, supporting individual and collective growth through physical and mental health, encouraging teamwork and community through sport and competition. The 350,000-square-foot building has become the largest athletics facility in the Northeastern US, comprising a multi-use field house, ice arena, Olympic-sized pool, competition gymnasium for basketball and volleyball, squash courts, a strength and fitness center, and multi-purpose studios.
