Roosevelt University's Lillian and Larry Goodman Center


Panel 2 of 3

The Lillian and Larry Goodman Center is 27,834-square-foot multi-purpose gymnasium located at one of Chicago’s most prominent intersections, the southeast corner of Congress Parkway and Wabash Avenue, across the street from Roosevelt University’s Auditorium Building. During the 2010-11 academic year, Roosevelt reinstated intercollegiate athletics for men after a 21-year absence and started an athletics program for women for the first time. The new Center is home to practice and competition for the Roosevelt Lakers men’s and women’s basketball and women’s volleyball teams.
