The latest model of the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex shows the addition of a proposed hotel. Zink Hall, Memorial Field House, and Miller Stadium appear at the top of the photo, while Wayne Avenue appears at the bottom.

In recent developments, a committee composed of Foundation for IUP, Student Cooperative Association, and Chamber of Commerce representatives engaged Hotel and Leisure Advisors, a consulting firm that is conducting a study to help shape the hotel’s occupancy and amenities. Meanwhile, Global Spectrum has been selected to serve as the complex’s arena manager, and the Foundation for IUP is currently seeking a hotel developer, according to Mark Geletka, assistant vice president for Administration.
