Davenport Gets a Move On. 

The process for using athletic facilities will be different this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Listed below is the new process that all participants must follow (Please note that the athletic facilities are only open to students at this time):

1. A signup is no longer required to use the Student Center

Please note ONLY Davenport University students, staff, and faculty are allowed to use the athletic facilities.

2. After you have completed your workout, if you are using any equipment, it is your responsibility to wipe down any equipment that you touch.

3. Please plan to bring your own water bottle and sweat towel if needed.

If you have any questions while you are here, please feel free to ask any of our staff.

Any questions please contact

The Student Center on Davenport’s W.A. Lettinga campus in Grand Rapids opened in October 2008. Since opening day, the Center has become the hub for social, recreational, and athletic action.

A few key activities and spaces in the Student Center are: 

  • Fitness center
  • Weight room
  • Auxiliary gym
  • Climbing center
  • Main arena
  • Turf field
  • Games area (Ping pong, pool, shuffle board, etc.)
  • Victory Cafe
  • Indoor track and more!

Home to our extremely successful athletics department and Panther athletes, the Panther Pride you'll find inside is contagious! It's time to shine with some healthy competitive spirit or just a sprint around the track. What are you waiting for?
