The University Events Center (UEC) was designed by the firm of Sink, Combs, and Dethlefs Architects. Turner Construction was selected as the CMR. The 81,300 GSF expansion includes space for commencement ceremonies, athletic programs being relocated from Jowers Center, as well as support space. An additional 1,748 seats will be added to the arena seating capacity. The project also includes a new chilled water plant, a new loading dock with access to the lower court level, a multi-purpose suite, locker rooms, and offices. This project will allow Jowers Center to be turned over for 100 percent academic use as all the current Department of Athletics offices and functions will move into the UEC.
