Gregory V. Monroe Athletic Complex

In 2014, West Virginia State University broke ground on this new $3.5 million Athletic Complex to be located adjacent to Lakin Field at Dickerson Stadium, home of the Yellow Jackets football team. This facility will be located just beyond the West endzone and will primarily house the varsity football locker room, weight training, instructional, and administrative spaces for the coaching staff. However, the training component of the program will serve all student athletes within the athletic department.

Design of the building provide a two‐story building massing stretching from sideline to sideline and creates an impressive backdrop both practice as well as the celebration of competition among students, faculty, and guests.

A large, glazed main façade allows for openness of meeting rooms and weight training spaces on the first floor and all coaches offices at the upper level. An central entry portal will allow for dramatic connectivity to the playing field and will serve as the gateway between preparation and execution. State of the art audio‐visual and weightlifting equipment coupled with engaging architectural and interior design will serve to hone the minds and bodies of WVSU’s student athletes and create a platform for competitive success and institutional pride.
