Auburn Athletic Complex
One of the signs of Auburn's athletic success and growth is the Auburn Athletic Complex, a three-story athletic administration and football facility.
The 88,000 square foot facility, which was occupied in June 1989, houses all football operations as well as various administrative offices of the Auburn Athletic Department. The structure is located at the corner of Samford Avenue and Donahue Drive on the Auburn campus, right across the street from Sewell Hall.
The building was designed to be an extremely functional athletic facility providing a quality working environment for Auburn's student-athletes. The complex was completely furnished with new state-of-the-art equipment.
In addition to being a facility for student-athletes, the Auburn Athletic Complex is a showplace for Auburn's illustrious football history. The Lovelace Museum, a 5,035 square foot museum room off the main lobby of the building, provides a proper place to display memorabilia of one of the premier athletic traditions in the country.
Across from the museum is the Rane Reception Room. Several of Auburn's Bowl trophies and Bo Jackson's Heisman Trophy are displayed in this room.
The first level of the building empties onto Auburn's three football practice fields and houses the locker rooms, equipment room and training room. The training room, containing the latest in sports medicine equipment, provides a jacuzzi, sauna and steam room for Auburn players.
The second level contains meeting rooms for all positions and an auditorium. In addition, a video tape editing system for game analysis and scouting are also located on this level.
The third level of the complex houses administrative offices, staff rooms and coaches' offices.
The multi-million dollar Auburn Athletic Complex is one of the finest facilities of its kind in collegiate athletics today. It was designed to serve Auburn's needs and to help keep Auburn's athletic program one of the premier programs in the nation.
