Muskingum University Health and Wellness Complex Project

Introducing the Muskingum University Health and Wellness Complex

Muskingum’s Health and Wellness Complex (HWC) will be a 100,000 square foot facility positioned in the heart of campus that will offer an upgraded stadium, a modern indoor fieldhouse, and a state-of-the-art diagnostics center. The HWC will connect academic programming, athletics, student life, and community partnerships.
The University is currently fundraising $30 million for the project, which is the largest campaign in the school’s history. Groundbreaking is slated for Spring 2020, with an anticipated opening of 2022.
