The Swan Center bears the name of legendary Clara Swan; Husson Student '33, and later professor and Dean. Clara still attends Husson basketball games and remains a faithful supporter of the University.

Primary benefactors of the Swan Center were Husson alumnus Dick Trott '65 and his wife, Alice. Built in 2001 as a fitness and performance testing center for students, the facility houses the Kenduskeag Research Center. This facility offers research equipment for performance testing for the departments of Kinesiology, Physical Therapy and Physical Education. This research center was funded by Hilda Hutchins and allows multiple uses across the curriculum.

The Swan Center houses the Richard and Alice Trott Fitness Studio, a state-of-the-art fitness center with twenty cardiovascular fitness machines, a set of selectorized weight equipment for every major muscle group and a full range of free weight equipment. This facility is climate-controlled, has 3,000 square feet with four TVs and a sound system.
