Marquette University’s new Athletic and Human Performance Research Center (AHPRC) in Milwaukee combines training, testing, and research in one facility while providing athletes with state-of-the-art locker rooms.

The first phase, completed in April, includes space for faculty researchers, strength and conditioning space, and locker rooms and support space for lacrosse and golf teams. Additionally, a team film room, and research and bio-assessment labs integrate athletics and research to develop new fitness technologies and advance data analytics to improve performance.

The design team for the project includes Perkins and Will and HGA.
