The 400,000 sf multi-purpose Kibbie Activity Center is home to a wide range of campus programs including the Department of Athletics, HERD – Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance and numerous events including commencement, the internationally acclaimed Hampton Jazz Festival, and regional conferences and tournaments. The renovation and expansion of the Kibbie Activity Center has been a 10-year, multi-phase project to provide additional space for growth of programs and address significant life-safety issues of the original construction.

The project includes spaces for operations and management, sports medicine and training, team meeting rooms, a Hall of Fame and function/event area, a sports information center, expanded equipment storage, enhanced men’s and women’s lockers and a new speed and strength center. The Vandal Athletic Center expansion transformed the existing 1976 building into a new, inviting entry and image for the Athletic Department that has become a significant part of student athlete recruitment

The facility boasts a state-of-the-art training facility, locker rooms and offices.

The Dome renovation improvements address life-safety issues, accessibility, acoustics, seating and system upgrades, as well as the addition of special donor suites, a club room and upgraded restrooms, concourses and other visitor amenities.
