The MTI Center is home to a number of Thunder Athletics programs. This 75,000 sf athletics and event center boasts an impressive addition to the growing needs of the Trine University campus. With over 3,000 seats, the arena is home court for Trine’s men’s and women’s basketball teams. In addition to this, there are additional programs and uses within this building for general student use and special uses including a fitness center, a banquet room, multiple athletic offices and training rooms.
Due to its location at the former Witmer Clubhouse, the MTI Center also houses a new Golf Pro Shop and support spaces to support the Zollner Golf Course. The center also includes a six-lane bowling alley to accommodate new men’s and women’s bowling teams.
In addition to traditional sports and functions, the MTI Center also houses one of the newest competitive programs in higher education – e-Gaming. Included in the design is a space for the newly launched Esports program which began in the Fall of 2017. This state-of-the-art space addresses a growing demand in collegiate interests in online competitive video gaming.
