AIA Dayton Tour of Newly Renovated University of Dayton Arena
February 5, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree – $25
Meet at the Ticket Office to begin this tour.
The University of Dayton unveiled its newly renovated UD Arena on November 19, fresh off a three-year, $76.2 million upgrade that is meant to give the facility another 50 years of life. The arena opened in 1969 and if it lasts another 50 years, UD Arena would turn 100 in 2069.
While UD Arena was built for basketball, it has served many other purposes over the years — Elvis performed there four times — and could play host to even more events in the years to come because of the improvements made over the last three years. The final phase of the renovations saw the expansion of the concourse on the arena’s west side, new locker rooms at court level, improved lighting over the court and a new media room.Those were just a few of the final improvements. One of the most significant enhancements made during this phase was the addition of a climate-control system. Air conditioning will give UD the chance to use the venue more in the summer.
