Don't miss a moment with our HWC Webcam.


Muskingum’s Health and Wellness Complex (HWC), the largest capital project in its history, will dramatically expand and enhance facilities to support academic programs, athletics, recreation, and well-being.  Construction begins summer 2020 on the 119,000 square-foot complex with completion scheduled for fall of 2022.

The HWC will feature:

  • An extensive fitness center with equipment for diagnosis and treatment of injuries as well as general fitness use.
  • Multi-purpose classrooms
  • An upgraded stadium with new seating, upgraded concourse and hospitality areas, and full accessibility.
  • A multi-use fieldhouse for indoor track and field (both collegiate and high school), and practice space for Muskingum varsity athletic teams

  • The Field Level will use the current turf field and track to host collegiate and high school competitions in football, soccer, lacrosse, and outdoor track and field.
  • The Concourse Level provides hospitality facilities - including expanded concessions and ample restrooms - to serve the stadium's new traditional and non-traditional fully-accessible spectator seating.
  • The Classroom Level offers multi-purpose classrooms to meet the instructional needs of our expanding interdisciplinary programs, and to support community education offerings. On game days, these areas - which overlook the outdoor field -  will serve as VIP spaces, media rooms, and coaches' boxes. Casual seating overlooking the indoor field will offer a relaxed gathering space for students and visitors, and bleachers around the upper oval will provide spectator seating for indoor track meets and other fieldhouse events.
  • The Wellness Level is anchored by a 200-meter regulation indoor track surrounding a turf field that will serve our varsity athletic teams, intramural sports, and recreational activities. The main corridor of the Wellness Level overlooks the outdoor field and will be home to the state-of-the-art fitness area and athletic performance laboratory.  The fitness area will offer a dynamic and energizing setting with advanced equipment, in a location allowing seamless integration of workout routines with the use of the track and turf field.  The Wellness Level will also house the Diagnostic Hub.

The Diagnostic Hub

This extensive space is equipped with diagnostic and training technology, and connectivity for telehealth collaborations with regional healthcare professionals, businesses, and educational institutions.  Both the Muskingum campus community and the broader community at large will benefit from education, training, and health services made possible by the Diagnostic Hub.


The HWC will attract and serve area residents and high school students along with Muskingum students, faculty, and staff.  Health screenings and health education will be available to residents.  The new athletic facilities will enable Muskingum to host high school competitions in multiple indoor and outdoor sports.
