Kohl Center Expansion

On April 4, 2022, Wisconsin Athletics broke ground on a $40 million, 42,000 square foot expansion to the southwest end of the Kohl Center.

This much–needed project will enhance amenities for our student–athletes, coaches and support staff:

  • Strength and Conditioning Center & Performance Nutrition Center
  • Sports Medicine Center
  • Expanded dining hall and food services for student-athletes
  • Student-Athlete Academic Center
  • Men’s and Women’s Basketball locker room improvements
  • Men’s Basketball, Women’s Basketball and Men’s Hockey coaches’ offices
  • Men’s and Women’s Tennis locker rooms
  • Courtside Club area on the event level for donor hospitality

The anticipated completion is set for the 2024 fall semester. Private support in the form of $25 million in project–specific gifts are needed to fully fund the Kohl Center Expansion. Currently, $23 million in gifts from over 100 generous donors have been committed towards this shared goal.
