Two campus projects that will significantly enhance the academic, athletic, and co-curricular experience at Arcadia University will be ready for use by the start of the fall 2024 semester. 

A multipurpose building on campus will provide approximately 19,000-square-feet of athletic and extracurricular space. The structure, located off of the campus’s Church Road entrance near the tennis courts, will be used for general student recreation, intramural programming, and intercollegiate athletics programming. 

In 2022, Arcadia acquired the property at 125 Royal Avenue (formerly Bishop McDevitt High School), which includes approximately 75,000-square-feet of classroom and laboratory space. The space will allow expansion for Arcadia’s nationally ranked and renowned College of Health Science programs, including the Physical Therapy and Physician Assistant programs. The space at 125 Royal Avenue will also include approximately 20,000-square-feet of space that will be renovated to accommodate training needs for men’s and women’s golf as well as men’s and women’s wrestling programs, which launch at Arcadia in fall 2025. A Step Up Academy (ASUA) will utilize space on the first two floors of 125 Royal Avenue, as part of its partnership with the University.

Arcadia is also offering several new academic programs for the fall 2024 semester.
