University of Louisville Student Activities Center

Louisville, Kentucky

The Student Activities Center, or SAC, is the main hub for student activities on the University of Louisville campus. The west wing of the SAC houses the campus bookstore, campus food services, a fast-food court, the Cardinal Corner Game Room, SAC Multipurpose room, as well as, the Student Activities and Dean of Students offices.

The east wing of the SAC includes Athletics.

The University of Louisville has space to reserve both for its student groups and the community at large.

Calhoun Construction served as served as general contractor on the first phase of the Student Activity Center renovation. This first phase included demolition of former athletic courts and locker rooms to allow for construction of new classrooms, offices and labs for the Health and Sport Science department. This department along with the PEACC department moved into their new spaces which allowed for the complete demolition of the old Student Services Annex building just to the south of the west wing of the SAC. At the completion of the demo of the old annex, the next phase of the renovation project will be ready which will include construction of an addition to the SAC.

Calhoun self-performed the selective demolition, drywall, acoustical ceilings, as well as doors and hardware on the project. Phase 1 work was completed in a tight 8-week construction schedule which was completed prior to the 1-month demolition of the Annex building.
