The Tom Arnold Net Center opened in 1997 to give the IHCC Main Campus another recreational facility and athletic venue, to go along with the Hellyer Student Life Center. The building bears the name of the famous actor, Tom Arnold, who helped fund the construction of the Net Center on the southeast corner of the campus. 

In 2013, the building underwent a major facelift with the project completed in the fall.  New locker rooms and coaches' offices were added along with a weight room and other amenities. The exterior of the facility was also updated with a glass front added to the east side.  Tom Arnold returned in March 2014 for the rededication of the building that bears his name.  During the summer of 2018, a new Mondo floor surface was installed, providing a professional level practice surface for the volleyball and track and field teams.  New softball batting cages were also installed along with a tennis court for recreational purposes.


Recreational Facilities inside the Tom Arnold Net Center:

The building serves as outstanding practice and recreational facility for Indian Hills Athletics and the general student population. An indoor tennis court, volleyball court, batting cages, basketball hoops, weight/cardio room serve the athletic department and entire campus community. The Net Center also has an Athletic Training Room and Indoor Golf facility.

In recent years, the Net Center has also been the venue for the college's annual spring advisory committee dinner and plays host to many other large campus and community events.  In the spring of 2019, the inaguaral Athletic Choice Awards banquet was held in this facility, honoring those student-athletes, staff members and community members who impact the Indian Hills Athletic Department.
