The Byron Center was constructed as an expansion of the University's athletic facilities, which at the time were limited to the Long Center. With three levels, the complex included multi-use courts for basketball and volleyball, an indoor running track, an Olympic-size swimming pool, racquetball courts, an aerobics room, locker rooms, and the Murray Royals Room, a 50-seat classroom for special events that was named for the family of Brian J. Murray, founder of the Royals Club.
