Hemmingson Center houses multiple dining services, the Center for Global Engagement, the Center for Community Engagement, Unity Multicultural Education Center, Gonzaga Outdoors, and study and recreational lounges.
Students can participate in activities through over 140 clubs in areas such as music, theater, culture, community service, and more, as well as Division I athletic teams and club and intramural sports.
