Hafter Student Community Center

The Hafter Center offers a place for fitness, fun, exercise and sport. The gymnasium is used for large combined classes, University events and student indoor sport competitions.

The Center is for the sole use of Salus University students, faculty and staff, and the members of the neighboring Breyer communities, who may enroll as gym members for a fee.

A private company, Corporate Fitness Works, of Virginia, administers the Center’s exercise gym and fitness programs. The Office of Student Affairs has responsibility for the operation of the Hafter Student Community Center and for scheduling events in the Center.
