In May 2004, the USF athletic family moved into a sparkling new $15 million facility that provides student-athletes with an outstanding environment for improving the mind and body with impressive space for academic counseling, sports medicine and strength and conditioning, in addition to a home for the athletic department staff. On Feb. 22, 2012, the building was officially named the Lee Roy Selmon Athletics Center, in honor of the late Lee Roy Selmon.

The building sits on the eastern end of campus and gives an impressive view for those entering campus on Bull Run.  The facility is 104,000 square feet and brings the vast majority of the athletic department under one roof. With the exception of men's and women's basketball, sailing and volleyball, the remainder of the 15 athletic teams call the facility home. The basketball teams remain in the on-campus Sun Dome, where volleyball also takes up residence in its home - The Corral.

The facility includes a 10,000-square foot strength and conditioning center with state-of-the-art medical and strength equipment. It also has an impressive Academic Enrichment Center that covers one-fourth of the upper floor in the two-story complex. The AEC includes a computer study lab, a separate study lounge, a library and office space for counselors and tutors.  An ongoing project in the new facility is a 2,200 square foot Hall of Fame.

The Academic Enrichment Center is designed to provide the academic support and the learning environment so that each student-athlete has the opportunity to reach their goals. It is the home of comprehensive services including advising, tutoring, and counseling, available to all USF student-athletes.

The Lee Roy Selmon Athletics Center also houses a state-of-the-art sports medicine clinic.  Opened in May of 2004, the 5,400-square-foot clinic is designed with the health care of every student-athlete in mind.  It features modalities and rehab equipment, as well as three Hydroworx series pools.  The Hydroworx 1000 is equipped with an underwater treadmill, three current jets, an underwater camera monitoring system, and a computer control console.  These pools are state-of-the-art and will allow the student-athletes an extra tool to return to play quickly and safely.
