New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) – Wellness and Events Center

Newark, NJ

The three-story, 220,000 sq. ft. NJIT Wellness and Events Center provides flexible program spaces that promotes the health and well-being of students, as well as supporting their academic pursuits, connecting the campus to the professional community, and providing training facilities that will enhance the development of Division I student-athletes.

Arguably the most unique design feature of the center is the 52-foot-height glass wall along the north fa├žade, which provides great views of the campus and the adjacent athletic field. The main circulation corridor in the building runs along the glass wall as it connects the central campus quadrangle to a transit station for the local light rail system.

The state-of-the-art complex supports NJIT athletes in swimming and diving, baseball, basketball, fencing, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, track and field, and volleyball. The facility features dedicated locker rooms and athletic staff offices, a 5,630 sq. ft., 25-yard pool with eight lane lap lanes, a full-length practice court, a main-concourse running track, a 3,500-seat arena, a 10,000 sq. ft. turf room, and a 5,700 sq. ft. fitness center for both the students and student athletes.
