The University of Iowa Department of Athletics continues to advance a set of projects that will provide Hawkeye student-athletes and their fans with services and facilities that rank among the best in the country. 

Women’s gymnastics, field hockey, men’s and women’s wrestling, baseball, and men’s and women’s basketball facility projects will be funded through donor support and department revenue. All of the projects, which are part of the university’s 10-year facilities master plan, have been or must be approved by the Board of Regents, State of Iowa. 

“We are grateful for the support our contributors continue to provide Hawkeye student-athletes. Their passion for Iowa athletics has allowed us to continue construction on a world-class wrestling training center and move closer to new facility and facility upgrades for a number of our nationally recognized programs,” says Gary Barta, who holds the Henry B. and Patricia B. Tippie Director of Athletics Chair. 

“In the athletics department, we often say that vision without resources is irrelevant. In the case of these facility upgrades, we have a strong vision and we are gaining momentum, as several contributors have made significant commitments that help us get closer to making them a reality.”
