McKinnon (MCK)

The McKinnon Building (MCK) contains Exercise Science and Physical and Health Education.

It also contains the University of Victoria (UVic) Sports Hall of Fame inductees 2002-2015, an indoor pool and a 2,500-seat triple gymnasium.



Archie McKinnon (1896-1984) was a legendary figure in the Victoria sports community who coached Canadian athletes at four Olympic games. This building was the primary recreation facility at UVic before the Centre for Athletics, Recreation and Special Abilities (CARSA) opened in May of 2015.

The Ken and Kathy Shields Court was named in honor of UVic’s legendary basketball coaches.
