RIT’s $25 million, 155,000 square-foot Gordon Field
House and Activities Center is nearing completion. With
a seating capacity of more than 8,000 people, the facility
will accommodate large-scale campus events such as graduation
as well as indoor sports. Other features include an aquatic
center with a 25-meter competition pool, a recreational
pool and spa and a 17,000-square foot fitness center.
On a tour of the construction site, Lucius R. “Bob” Gordon,
an RIT trustee and supporter for more than 60 years and
a key contributor to the field house, helped lay some
of the 130,000 bricks used in the project.
