Indiana University to build $110 million athletics center

June 25, 2024

Indiana University (IU) will build a $110 million multipurpose athletics center that will provide additional indoor space for sporting and athletic events for the university and downtown Indianapolis. The project has been approved, but a construction date has not been announced.

The IU Board of Trustees approved the project during its June 14 session. The university will use $89 million in state appropriations to fund the project, taken from the state’s biennial budget. IU will match the state’s contribution with $21 million to fund the project.

The 134,000-square-foot athletics center will be able to seat up to 4,500 spectators. The facility will feature a multipurpose arena, an auxiliary gym and community gathering spaces. In addition, the building will include around 16,000 feet of office space and additional athletics support spaces.

The athletics center will feature a basketball/volleyball court, locker rooms and training facilities. The seating will be retractable, providing extra space and flexibility for recreational activities and sports.

The project will incorporate concourse space, concessions, restrooms, storage and mechanical/electrical spaces into the building’s design. The center will be on-campus as an addition to the IU sports district.
