Sporting Facilities

Students learn, compete, and recreate using the many facilities housed in the HPE building.  The gymnasium has 6 basketball goals allowing for two full courts games to be played at the same time.  Surrounding the gymnasium is an indoor walking track and 5 racquetball courts. 

The most unique program in the HPE building is the USA Weightlifting High Performance and Development Center.  Lifters who have trained here have represented the USA at the Olympics and many other international competitions.  The LSUS college weightlifting team holds multiple national titles.

The HPE building also has a multipurpose exercise and weight room equipped with a treadmill, elliptical machine, rowing machines, recumbent bike, and six spin bikes to meet your cardiovascular training needs.  The free weight area includes multiple squat racks, benches, dumbbells, and a wide array of weight machines.  A dance studio provides space for academic and Rec Sports classes as well as individual recreation.  The LSUS Natatorium houses a 6 lane, 25 meter lap pool with a connected shallow end.  Our pool was featured in the movie "The Guardian" and also serves the community as a training center for Barksdale Air Force Base's Water Survival classes and a local adult and children's swim team.  Surrounding the HPE building there are several large fields and 8 tennis courts for outdoor recreation.  The Low Ropes course can also be used with LSUS supervision.

Organized events need prior approval from the HPE Facilities Coordinator who can be contacted at 318-798-4145.  The appropriate rental form can be found by clicking here.
