Rutgers University: Rodkin Academic Success Center

New Brunswick, New Jersey
Located on Scarlet Knight Way, the new 80,000 sf Rodkin Academic Success Center will consolidate all academic support services for Rutgers Athletics within a single building, as well as provide a new athletic training facility for the men’s and women’s soccer and lacrosse teams. Serving the over 700 Rutgers student athletes, the facility will include program for academic advising, learning specialists, one-on-one and group tutoring, seminar rooms, a nutrition and teaching kitchen, team study halls, a computer lab, and an expansive lounge area designed to foster peer-to-peer learning. In addition, plans include new training, meeting space, coaches offices, and locker rooms for both soccer and lacrosse. A part of the Rutgers University ‘R BIG TEN BUILD’ campaign, this project was made possible by a $15 million gift from Gary and Barbara Rodkin – the largest single gift in Rutgers Athletics history. The Perkins Eastman team developed various support materials including renderings and an interactive app to assist the university with their fundraising efforts.
