Due to the Duke vs UNC Men’s Basketball game on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, K-Ville will be closed.
All access to the Wilson Center will be rerouted through Card Gym.
Members parking in Blue Zone lots 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 should follow the sidewalks closest
to the Wallace Wade Football Stadium to access the Card Gym entrance. Go Duke!

"After freshman year, it became apparent to me that an experience I had long taken for granted was not always accessible to everyone. The Ski & Snowboard team, along with other Club Sports at Duke, is open to all but cannot fully function on member dues alone."
For Emily Skoczlas, pursuing a Green Workplace Certification for her workplace – the Wilson Recreation Center – was an easy call.
She led a team that convinced co-workers to use recycled copier paper, turn off lights and computers when not needed and bring utensils from home instead of using disposable ones.
Pass by K-Ville, swipe in at Wilson Gym, walk past Quenchers and a grey, irregularly shaped wall with colorful blobs rises out of the floor beneath you.
It’s the backdrop of Wilson’s cardio area. Squished into the corner surrounded by an army of exercise bikes and treadmills, the rock climbing wall is an obvious afterthought.
