The Hindman-Hobbs Center, also known as the HPER (pronounced hy-per), was constructed in 1989 and includes facilities for all recreational and intramural activities. It features three activity courts that can be separated, a swimming pool, a golf room, a wrestling room, weight rooms, and an indoor track. It also includes classroom areas, including those for dance, and other offices.

The Hindman-Hobbs Center is also home to the swim and wrestling teams, but is often used as a common workout facility for students, faculty, and staff. Hours are announced and swimming is open to non-swim team members throughout the day.
