Athletic Village rendering

Athletics Village

During the ONE VCU Master Plan process, VCU Athletics conducted a planning study and determined that a new site, off the main-campus footprint, would solve several existing concerns — the need for more, consolidated space and the need for space upgrades. VCU Athletics currently falls below its peer average for sport and recreation space, with approximately a quarter of existing facilities in need of major renovation. An off-campus VCU Athletic Village will offer new sports fields and facilities, including a tennis center, soccer stadium, outdoor track stadium, practice fields, and a multi-purpose facility. This plan returns on-campus real estate to serve academic and student needs, reduces travel and increases practice times for teams, and offers new opportunities for community impact through youth programming.

It is important to note that undertaking a pre-planning study does not guarantee that a particular project will come to fruition. Issues such as funding availability or a shift in priorities can delay or even cancel a project from becoming a reality.
