University of Minnesota Athletes Village
This $166 million complex rewrites practice, lifestyle and academic playbooks. The spaces strike a balance between honoring the history of the school’s athletics and motivating current student athletes to strive for academic excellence and service to their community.
The new 340,000 square foot facility will focus on student athlete welfare and development for the 750 student-athletes attending the school. It includes a Student Athlete Center for Excellence that will be a flagship facility for the entire Athletics Department, emphasizing academics, leadership development and nutrition, and will be an addition to the existing athletic field building and football complex. It will also include a men’s and women’s basketball practice facility, an indoor football practice facility, and a football performance center that will provide much-needed facilities for the football program.
