Worcester State University has been given the green light to build a $45.5 million, 100,000 square foot Wellness Center, which is expected to open in 2016. The project is among a list of Commonwealth capital investments according to an updated five-year capital plan released by state officials. Construction is expected to begin in 2013.
The facility will replace the existing gym building and feature athletic space, instructional space, studio space, and community space. Our student athletes and the general student population will benefit greatly from this new facility. Not only will it support our educational programs, athletic programs and student fitness, it will be a terrific community resource. The current gymnasium was built in 1958 and was meant to serve just 400 students. Worcester State’s current enrollment is more than 6,000 undergraduate and graduate students.
