The first floor of the 30,000 square foot building includes an equipment room that will service each of the three sports that compete in the stadium, as well as a modern sports medicine room. Also on this level, a 2,800-square-foot, dividable locker room will feature 100 wooden lockers. The locker room will be used by the football team in the fall and then divided in two for the men's and women's lacrosse teams in the spring. There will also be a small locker room for game officials or coaches to use.
The second level is the main concourse level, where fans will enter to take their seats on the stadium's home side, passing a multipurpose meeting room and trophy case along the way.
This level also includes a full-service concession stand and public bathrooms.
The facility's press box is on the third level and will house game operations personnel and a separate broadcast booth — allowing the Athletic communication department to elevate the quality of its first-class live broadcasts enjoyed by many alumni, parents, and fans — as well as other areas for Athletic communication staff, scoreboard staff, public address announcers, and the media. Spotting booths for both the home and visiting coaching staff are on this level, too.
In addition to the Curtis Press Box, the third level also features a reception and entertainment space that will allow the College to welcome guests on game day and host other College events.
