UW–Madison shut down its Southeast Recreational Facility (SERF), 715 W. Dayton St., last fall to replace the 34-year-old building with a larger, $96.5 million structure. The new facility will have more workout spaces, exercise studios, basketball courts, and a regulation-size swimming pool. The old building was demolished in mid-January to make room for the Nicholas Recreation Center, or the “Nick” for short.
