Kirby Renovation for Health-Wellness Facility
Enlarge
The campus plan strategy is to renovate the Kirby Fieldhouse to serve as the home for the College’s basketball program and as a health and wellness facility, serving the campus also as the primary focus for all physical education programs and recreational activites.

The vision for the building is to renovate internally to provide full access; to improve mechanical systems, including air conditioning the entire building; and to enhance the facility's appeal, refurbishing finishes and making activities more visible, and, therefore, more attractive and inviting to students and other users.

There is approximately 75,660 GSF of space in the building now; though there are no immediate plans to expand the facility, campus planning discussions have identified the potential to expand the building northward to the upper fields, if and when the College deems a larger fieldhouse necessary.
