Centre for Athletics, Recreation and Special Abilities
UVic's Centre for Athletics, Recreation and Special Abilities (CARSA) will provide world-class training and learning facilities for all community members, with access to athletics and recreation resources as well as specific services and research programs.
The momentum is building; the vision is becoming a reality
The UVic community strives to be the best and inspire others as world-class leaders in the pursuit of excellence, discovery and diversity. CARSA is quickly becoming a reality. This is CARSA. Join us in building a landmark.
Located along Gabriola Road near the McKinnon Building, the new centre will house the UVic Vikes sports and recreation programs, as well as offices, labs and a machine shop for UVic's CanAssist, with customized technologies, programs and services for people living with disabilities.
CARSA will build on our record as a launching point for high-performance athletes, and will benefit health-conscious individuals and those participating in community sports and recreation.
It is also targeted to achieve the LEED gold standard. Its completion is scheduled for spring 2015.
