Mackey Complex Project

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Purdue athletics department will host a community open house for the new Mackey Complex on Wednesday, Nov. 16.

All are welcome from 5 to 7 p.m. and should enter through the Spurgeon Club off Northwestern Avenue. Parking is available in the F Lot off Northwestern, just east of the Mollenkopf Athletic Facility.

For more information, please contact the John Purdue Club by phone at (800) 213-2239 or (765) 494-3248 or via email at

The Mackey Complex project has brought a 40-plus-year-old campus landmark into the 21st century while preserving its rich history and tradition. But the scope of the project was significantly greater, designed to have a positive effect on all Boilermaker student-athletes, specifically with improved and increased space for academic support, sports medicine and sports performance.

The first game to be played in the new Mackey is Nov. 1, a men's basketball exhibition vs. Northern State at 7 p.m. On Nov. 6, the women's basketball team plays an exhibition game vs. Edinboro at 1 p.m., followed by the men's team taking on Southern Indiana at 5 p.m.

Current Boilermaker student-athletes will be given tours of the complex Nov. 7, 8 and 9, prior to an invitation-only renovation celebration event Nov. 10. The first regular-season men's basketball game is Nov. 11 vs. Northern Illinois at 7 p.m., while the first regular-season women's game is Nov. 13 vs. IUPUI at 2 p.m.

John Purdue Club members, Purdue faculty and staff, and the various student-run athletics groups will be invited to an open house and tour Nov. 14, then Purdue students, Hills and Dales residents and Mackey Complex project design and construction groups Nov. 15.
