GSU’s planned Convocation Center will be nestled between Pollard Boulevard, Capitol Avenue, and Fulton Street. The building’s façade will be comprised of brick masonry, stone, metal and glass to create an energy-efficient and aesthetically appealing exterior that masterfully utilizes the site’s existing topography. This multi-level, 200,000 sf state-of-the-art facility has been designed to serve both the University’s and the surrounding community’s event space needs. Serving as a future host for both national and international events, the GSU Convocation Center will not only provide increased focus to the University’s programs, but will also offer opportunities to substantially impact the economy and development of the surrounding community. The GSU Convocation Center will house a large, multi-purpose arena with a seating capacity of 8,000, and will host athletic events, convocations, commencements, conferences, concerts and other major events on a scale reflective of the University’s national and international stature in learning and research. The building will also feature divisible meeting and conference spaces with state-of-the-art technology, lighting, acoustics and building control systems.
