“If you build it, they will come.” That certainly has been the case at Plymouth State, where impressive new facilities have translated into enrollment increases, improved outcomes in the classrooms and on the playing fields, and new avenues for community partnerships.

The new Health Performance Center, opened in January 2019 in a major renovation of the Physical Education Center, is the latest example of capital projects that provide students with superior learning environments. It joins other showcase facilities (the Lamson Library, Silver Center for the Arts, and ALLWell athletic complex, to name just a few) that distinguish the University as a center of excellence.

The construction of new facilities, such the Merrill Place Conference Center and Residences, spur regional economic development. The conference center is the centerpiece of PSU’s growing Events and Conference Planning Office, which recently more than doubled the number of summer conferences held, increasing revenues by 130 percent. New construction is complemented by upgrades to historic structures and modernizing existing residence halls, and by landscaping improvements to PSU’s classic New England campus.

The current capital project priority is the Health and Human Performance Center’s Strength and Conditioning Open Laboratory, a state-of-the-art facility of special benefit to students in the athletic training, exercise and sport physiology, health education, and physical education programs.

Capital projects ensure that PSU makes its best possible presentation in today’s challenging enrollment environment, and that our students are ready to make their marks in the competitive world that awaits. We invite you to help students by building a better campus.
