The Wolf Den is enhanced space and programming for health, wellness and recreation.

Your Financial Support is Needed to Create

  • Space for diverse student and community recreational programs
  • A modern wellness facility with new equipment
  • Space for Health and Wellness services


The Demand

Lakehead students overwhelmingly voted in favour of expanding our athletic facilities: 79% of students voted yes to investing their own student fees towards a new facility.

With Your Help

Our new facilities will address the challenges of our growing university and city with much needed new space, programming and opportunities for our students and wide range of users.

The Result

The quality of our new facilities will be instrumental in attracting and retaining students, student athletes, staff and faculty and the community to our campus and will ensure we meet their individual wellness needs once here. With a new, modern and accessible hub for health, wellness and recreation in Thunder Bay, we can make wellness available and attainable to everyone who lives, studies and works here.
