Faculty, staff, and students can draw on the facilities of the Physical Education Building. The building includes a 3,300-seat gymnasium with a varsity basketball court, a volleyball court, and a badminton court; a 25-yard swimming pool; a spectator gallery; dressing rooms for men and women with disabilities and an elevator with direct access to the swimming pool; men’s and women’s locker rooms equipped with saunas; and a fitness center with free weights, exercise machines, and selectorized machines.
The facility also includes an annex which has a large gymnasium divisible by curtains into two sections, each with a high school-sized basketball court, two tennis courts, three volleyball courts, six badminton courts, four racquetball courts with glass backwalls and an instructor’s gallery, and a suspended running track with 14 laps to the mile.
In 2004, a new athletic training room and a new human performance lab were added to the physical education building. The athletic training room includes a wet area complete with whirlpools and ice machines, treatment tables, and a physician exam room. The athletic training room serves Division II student athletes at Montana State University Billings as well as provides an instructional setting for students in the athletic training program. The human performance lab is complete with biomechanic, biofeedback, and exercise physiology equipment including a new pulmonary exercise system for monitoring metabolic processes.
