Athletic and Recreational Facilities


Penn State Behrend has an outstanding mix of athletic facilities on its 854-acre campus, including the Junker Center, an athletics and recreation complex that opened in 2001.

On March 28, 2023, Penn State Behrend opened its doors to the new 52,700-square-foot Erie Hall. It includes a three-court gymnasium, training rooms, and support space for the college’s NCAA athletics teams. There are six squat racks, scores of free weights and strength training stations and rows of treadmills, ellipticals, and other cardio and strength machines. The new building also provides additional fitness and recreation space and expand the college’s wellness programs: The Personal Counseling office offers workshops related to anxiety reduction, stress management, nutrition, and healthy-living strategies, among other health-related topics.

Other facilities include a soccer/lacrosse complex, track & field facility, baseball and softball complex, intramural fields, sand volleyball courts, lighted tennis courts, and the Wintergreen Gorge--a beautiful spot for a walk or hike.
