Overall the college is investing £6 million on its Horsforth site in a bid to gain
Commercial services manager at the college Damon Shaw said: "I'm very excited about the prospect of delivering a high quality new sports facility to Horsforth. The centre will provide the very best equipment and a mix of activities to rival any sports facility in the area."
The college currently has over 2.500 students, and wants to increase that number to 5,000 in five years in order to apply for university status and award its own degrees.
Work is also underway on five en-suite accommodation blocks on Brownberrie Lane, which will include 161 bedrooms.
A planning application for the blocks this April met with 472 objections from local residents concerned about parking chaos.
The sports centre will be officially opened on November 1 by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Brian Cleasby, and the Bishop of Leeds, Rt Rev Arthur Roche.
