NORFOLK, Va. -- Take a peek of the work in progress and the tremendous amount of work completed on the ODU Rowing Center. The outside to the new home of ODU women's rowing is nearly complete and construction of the inside of the building is underway.
Located on the north side of Lakewood Park on the Lafayette River, just minutes from campus, the rowing center will be a two-story, 13,000 square foot, boathouse facility that will house the Lady Monarchs rowing program.
The boathouse will feature two heated bays on the first floor with storage space for approximately eight eights, six fours and over 12 pair/doubles and singles. Also on the first floor will be a team locker room that will accommodate up to 60 student-athletes. The coaches' offices will be on the second floor, along with a team lounge/study area that will have a flat screen television and wireless internet access. A training area with enough space for 40 rowing machines and other training equipment will also make up the second level.
