The Durden Athletic Training Center

The new Durden Athletic Center.

Thanks to a $6 million gift from Samuel G. Rose ’58 and Julie Walters, a new two-story, 22,000-square-foot athletics-training center will replace the current 1960s-era locker rooms at Dickinson’s recently renovated Biddle Field. The new facility will be named the Durden Athletic Training Center to honor the tenure of President William G. Durden ’71 and his wife, Dr. Elke Durden.

The new Durden Center will feature:

  • separate locker rooms for men’s and women’s lacrosse, football, field hockey, coaches, officials and visiting teams
  • a strength-training and free-weight room 
  • sports-medicine facilities
  • a laundry and equipment room 
  • a team-meeting/event room with a viewing platform overlooking Biddle Field 
  • and an exhibition area to honor Dickinson athletics.
