The Multipurpose Activity Center is a 153,000 sq. ft. facility with two basketball courts, a Fitness Center, 200M indoor track with jumping pits, locker rooms for all sports, bookstore, Hall of Fame, lobby with 3 ticket windows, Booster Club, Training Rooms, and infrastructure for television and signage.

The new facility is situated in the center of the campus and serves not only the athletes but 90 percent of the 6,000 graduate and undergraduate students who are not participants in the 19 NCAA Division I teams that play at Monmouth. The design of the Center integrates student amenities like a bookstore and copy center with athletic venues such as a special event arena. The arena space can be set-up to host commencement exercises, special exhibitions, or as a concert venue.

The upper-level of the Center serves as a conference facility with visitor amenities and private suites designed to maximize revenue and sponsorship opportunities.

The new arena benefits recruiting for the school’s men’s and women’s basketball teams as well as enable Monmouth to host big name colleges in basketball. MAC also provides critical meeting space for regional conference on contemporary social or educational issues while providing a venue for many of the internal groups and clubs looking for a home.
