Re:  Construction/Exam Update

Dear Students, Staff & Members,
In light of the construction happening outside of the main gym, exams will be taking place in the Hangar rather than the main gym.
To help provide alternative solutions and lessen the disruption during the closure we have arranged the following:
  1. We will be moving as much equipment as possible to the cardio room to help prevent as much disruption as possible and will have
  2. Open gym time each afternoon and evening (please see for times)
  3. The mezzanine around the gymnasium will be available for walking

The Hangar will be closed from December 4th – December 18th inclusive.

We greatly appreciate your patience during this time.

New Facility & Events Entrance

Dear Thunderwolves Students, Members, Season Ticket Holders, Staff & Community Groups,

We’ve been hard at work making the building pictured above become a reality!  The Wolf Den, Lakehead University’s New Athletics Facility, will provide all of our users with  state-of-the-art fitness, gymnasium and wellness areas while providing a new entrance to our loved CJ Sanders Fieldhouse & Hangar.  With our varsity season upon us, we thought it important to share what you can expect to enter during our 2020/2021 season while ensuring you have the proper information to seamlessly enter the facilities for events during the current year.  Our first games take place this Friday, September 27th and Saturday, September 28th at 7pm;  we kindly ask that upon entering the building you follow the instructions below.

During construction, we will be using the East entrance between the Hangar and the Fieldhouse for events.  This will be the only entrance available 1 hour prior to game time and throughout the duration of the event for all members, community groups, and varsity spectators.  We have included a map below to identify the easiest way to access this entrance along with a schedule of our Varsity home game dates and times.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during the construction of our new facility!  For more information visit or call the front desk at (807) 343-8585.
