The Albert and Barrie Zesiger Sports and Fitness Center has had a major impact on the quality of MIT campus life since its opening in 2002. The state-of-the-art complex includes an Olympic-class 50-meter pool, seating for 450 spectators, a training pool, an 11,000-square-foot fitness center, and six squash courts built to international competition standards. A 5,000-square-foot multi-activity court offers volleyball, aerobics and recreational basketball. The complex also includes a 3,700-square-foot sports medicine area, administrative offices and locker rooms.

Pritzker Prize-winning architect Kevin Roche, John Dinkeloo and Associates designed the Zesiger Center to link a number of existing athletics facilities. By visually connecting the south facades of the Howard W. Johnson Athletics Center and the Stratton Student Center, it completes the north wall of a quadrangle originally envisioned by noted architect Eero Saarinen in his plan for the development of the MIT campus west of Massachusetts Avenue.
