RICHMOND, Va. – The University of Richmond and the Department of Athletics have announced plans to renovate historic Millhiser Gymnasium as part of the broader project to build the University’s Well-Being Center and the Queally Athletic Center. Construction on the entire project will begin in earnest this spring with completion slated for the fall of 2020.
Historic Millhiser Gymnasium will become the new home for the Spiders’ close to 400-plus student-athletes with its transformation into the Student-Athlete Development Center at Millhiser Gymnasium. The center will house Student-Athlete Academic Services and the expanded Spider Leadership Program. The center will include individual and group studying areas, tutoring spaces, classroom, and designated areas for academic support and leadership development of all student-athletes.
