Seaver Physical Education Center

The Seaver Physical Education Center is located on the campus of Rockford University and hosts all of the Regents home basketball and volleyball events. In addition to the main competition gym, the building also houses a weight room, fitness center, athletic training room, multiple locker rooms and an auxiliary gymnasium. The auxiliary gym doubles as a recreational space for everyone on campus to enjoy, featuring two basketball hoops and a court, a volleyball net and a court and three drop down batting cages. The upstairs of the building was recently renovated to create multiple lounges and a space for strength and conditioning. 

The building is also home to the Rockford University Physical Education department. The space features multiple classrooms and offices for students and faculty to enjoy.
