The University of Dayton has announced a $72 million renovation to its arena which will be designed by Hastings+Chivetta (Architect of Record) in association with Sink Combs Dethlefs (Design Architect.)  “This is not just a renovation; it’s a transformational project,” said UD Vice President/Director of Athletics Neil Sullivan. “UD Arena will turn 50 years old in 2019. For it to serve the community and as the home for Flyers basketball – as well as NCAA Tournament games – for the next several decades, it requires a bold, significant upgrade.”

This critically important project will result in a state-of-the-art facility. The end results of the renovation will greatly enhance the fan and student-athlete experiences and dramatically improve the infrastructure while maintaining the current seating capacity.

In addition to Flyer men’s and women’s basketball games, high school tournament games and the NCAA First Four, it is used for competitions such as the Winter Guard International World Championships, entertainment events, large-scale educational seminars and as a staging area for community projects.
