Penn State Campus Master Plan

University Park, Pennsylvania


The East Campus Expansion proposed development of several facilities related to the Athletic Department at Penn State. These included –

Convocation Center
Indoor Arena
Conference Center

Circulation and location of structures had to consider the significant needs for event parking and “game day” pedestrian and vehicular traffic flow to and from the area. Game Day events are a tradition with an enormous free-flow of people from surrounding parking fields.

The Master Plan, while continuing to allow for free pedestrian access, established perimeter zones for vehicles and clear, distinct plazas and walks that connect the event facilities to one another and to the main campus.
