MSUN Wellness Center
Montana State University Northern
Montana State University- Northern Foundation requested a facility feasibility study and design for a new west side athletic campus. Phase 1 would include a “game ready” facility including a new football field, scoreboard, press box, bleachers, community pavilion area, toilets and upgraded parking. Phase 2 would include a new 60,000 sf Wellness Center which will include classrooms, banquet area, student/staff gym, team locker rooms, trainer rooms, meeting rooms, administration/staff office area with conference rooms, concessions’ area with a full kitchen, bathrooms, elevator, a ticket office as well as additional bleacher seating capacity of 5,000 people along with booster area and a full site development for parking, walking and drive-access along with landscaping/paths to integrate the design with their current campus. The entire project will also create more options for a healthy campus living environment for students and staff by providing more opportunities for indoor and outdoor recreation space. Along with the indoor wellness center there will be a walking and jogging path that will surround the campus and provide a safe and healthy way to enjoy the outdoors. The walking and jogging path will be available to faculty, students, staff, and the Havre public.
