The Illinois Champions Campaign is the catalyst of a major, $40 million renovation of the Richard T. Ubben Basketball Complex.
The facility that originally opened in 1998 will undergo a facelift that will double the square footage of the building. Improvements will benefit both the men’s and women’s programs and will include additional court space, state-of-the-art sports medicine facilities, an enhanced strength and conditioning area, study spaces, expanded staff offices, and modern student-athlete amenities in new locker rooms and team areas.
The renovation will add approximately 40,000 square feet to the existing structure, while remodeling more than 40,000 square feet of existing space. A new atrium lobby space and areas to host recruits and small groups will also be a part of the project. Two new half courts will be added to both the women’s and men’s current gym space, giving the two programs additional space to work on development while not disrupting full-court action. The project will feature a dramatic glass enclosed strength and conditioning addition, will triple the size of the locker rooms and player lounges, and feature an expansive sports medicine area including hydrotherapy and sports science spaces.
