Duchossois Center for Athletics and Recreation, formerly Warner Center (Under Construction)
The Richard L. Duchossois Center for Athletics and Recreation includes a restoration of the existing Doremus Gymnasium and a rebuild of what has been known as the Warner Center. The center will encompass 165,489 square feet and will capture over 10,700 square feet of assignable space for new athletic and recreation programs. The project will also increase the square footage for the fitness center by 32 percent and will relocate and expand the wrestling room by over 84 percent. It will also allow the racquetball and squash courts to become regulation size, while doubling the scope of the athletic training facilities.
Other key features will include greater handicap accessibility, a showcase for the Athletic Hall of Fame, an increase in locker room amenities and features, expanded golf practice facilities, expanded multi-purpose facilities for group exercise, and improved offices for coaches and athletics staff.
