Georgetown University Athletic Center

Intercollegiate Athletic Center
Washington, DC

Bowie Gridley Architects/Populous was selected to design this new Intercollegiate Athletic Center facility for Georgetown University’s men’s and women’s basketball, soccer and lacrosse programs (NCAA Division I, Big East Conference). The 136,000 square-foot, three-story facility provides state-of-the-art training facilities for the University’s signature athletic programs, as well as social and academic support centers for all of the school’s scholar-athletes. The new facility, which is directly connected to the McDonough Gym via a linear glass link, was designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.  A variety of student spaces make the Intercollegiate Athletic Center a place for gathering. Offices and meeting space, seminar rooms, study areas, and student-athlete lounge areas comprise a portion of the building. The Center was designed and constructed to fit within the context of the campus with a Collegiate Gothic style.
