The football performance complex, which is located adjacent to the north end of the Mollenkopf Athletic Center, opened in August of 2017. 

The three-level structure - amassing 112,000 square feet - includes a locker room, team meeting room, position group meeting rooms, player development room, weight room, sports medicine and hydrotherapy area, nutrition station, and coaches' and support staff offices, as well as a grand entrance lobby showcasing the Boilermakers' history and tradition. 

The state-of-the-art complex has significantly enhanced the football student-athlete experience. In addition to the first-class amenities, having all of them located in one facility results in more efficient use of the student-athletes' time. Previously, football-related facilities were housed in multiple buildings. 

A $65 million project, the football performance complex was designed by Populous, while construction was managed by the Hunt Construction Group. The groundbreaking ceremony took place April 15, 2016 - with 11 Purdue Super Bowl champions in attendance - and construction took 16 months. The facility was dedicated Sept. 8, 2017.
