The new Sea Gull Stadium is the first step of Salisbury University’s vision to be a recognized national model of a 21st Century intercollegiate athletic program. Subpar to the performance of their Division III national championship teams and individuals, the university’s previously aging facility was in desperate need of replacement. The new stadium provides Salisbury’s athletes with a venue they deserve, including all the necessary resources, amenities, and tools to succeed against their conference and national rivals. 

The stadium is designed to be compatible with the university architecture, but to also have its own strong identity and clearly delineate its function as the sporting destination on campus. The new welcoming façade fosters a sense of place, encouraging excitement and anticipation as fans proceed to the defined ground entry. While originally programmed as multiple buildings, GWWO advocated including the locker rooms as part of the facility in order to give the building more prominence and permanence. The result is an integrated complex that serves fan, athlete, coach, and press needs and is a source of pride for all.
