CAPITAL PROJECTS

We've got the talented student-athletes and inspiring coaches. But our teams also need the best places to hone their skills and display their prowess, which is why we are dedicated to improving our existing facilities and building new ones.

Currently, major facilities for nearly every program exist on-site including track and field, lacrosse, football, volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball, hockey and swimming and diving. Many of UConn's athletics programs are in need of upgrades to facilities, either to address deferred maintenance in existing buildings, expand event seating capacity or provide more desirable space to attract top student-athletes to the University.

Our world-class student-athletes deserve world-class facilities and a gift to UConn Athletics' capital projects will provide not just our student-athletes but students, fans, alumni and local communities with beautiful spaces for events and activities.

For more information about capital projects and naming opportunities, please call the UConn Athletic Development Office at (860) 486-3863 or e-mail UConnClub@foundation.uconn.edu.
