Project Location

In 2009, the Denison University’s Board of Trustees approved plans for the $38 million renovation of the Mitchell Center. The center houses Livingston Gymnasium, Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse, the Mitchell Indoor Track, the new Trumbull Aquatics Center, and a new two-story, 8,000 sq. ft. fitness center. In addition, the Mitchell Center features international squash courts, a regulation 200-meter indoor track and indoor tennis courts, as well as aerobics, strength and fitness facilities.

At the center of the project is the new aquatics facility with an Olympic-sized pool, four times larger than Denison’s previous pool. Features of the new Trumbull Aquatics Center include:

12,600 sq. ft., Competition Pool

  • Nine 50-meter lanes
  • Moveable floor
  • Moveable bulkhead allowing staff to configure the pool where instructional, recreational, fitness swimming, and team practice can occur simultaneously
  • State-of-the-art timing system and video display scoreboard
  • Unique spectator seating for more than 1,000 on three sides of the competitive course

2,100 sq. ft. Diving Well

  • Two 3-meter diving boards
  • Two 1-meter diving boards
  • Spotting rigs over the diving boards

160 sq. ft. Spa

As with all new construction and renovations at Denison, the aquatic center was built according to LEED standards, a national benchmark for sustainable design by the U.S. Green Building Council.
