Academic Center/Field House
The ASU Field House is in need of extensive renovations or reconstruction to meet the needs of our student-athletes and coaches. Once the proud home of national champions and perennial Lone Star Conference champions, the Field House now serves as a glorified equipment storage facility. The 13,000-square-foot structure was built in the late 1960s for legendary football coach Grant Teaff and the football program. It is adjacent to the Junell Center, LeGrand Sports Complex and football practice field.
Currently, student-athletes are limited to two computers in the Champions Lounge area of the Junell Center athletic offices. Being in such a high-traffic area often leads to unintended distractions from their studies. Additional space in the Field House will serve to support the academic needs of student-athletes by creating an Academic Center for educational growth. It will also once again house the coaching staff and meeting areas for the ASU football program. This, in turn, will open up space in the other athletic facilities needed to house athletic administration and coaches.
The renovation or reconstruction will include clearing asbestos, major reconfiguring of the building’s interior for air conditioning and technological advancements, updates throughout and structural reinforcements.
Funding needs for the Field House renovation are benchmarked at $2 million.
