TRIENENS PERFORMANCE CENTER
Northwestern's renovation of Welsh-Ryan Arena will include a state-of-the-art practice facility for basketball, volleyball and other Wildcats programs.
The enhancement is possible thanks in large part to a gift of $20 million from University trustee and alumnus Howard J. Trienens. In recognition of his continuing generosity, the facility will be named the Trienens Performance Center.
The Trienens Performance Center will feature a fieldhouse with three courts constructed inside the existing Trienens Hall, adjacent to Welsh-Ryan Arena. The facility will allow for construction of larger team locker rooms inside the Arena for men's basketball, women's basketball and volleyball. It also will include:
Best-in-class athletic training and rehabilitation amenities
Ultramodern strength and conditioning facilities
Team meeting rooms with advanced teaching technologies
Expanded performance nutrition hub
Offices for men's and women's basketball
Staff locker rooms
“The Trienens Performance Center is a game changer for the development of our student-athletes. What was already a dramatic transformation for our Wildcats now has been elevated even further.”
– Sullivan-Ubben Head Men's Basketball Coach Chris Collins
