  • Description:
    • A key addition to the athletics campus will be the new 10,000-square-foot strength and conditioning space to meet the needs of every Blue Hen student-athlete. Inside, more than 100 can lift weights simultaneously, eliminating the present need for separate shifts to allow everyone use of the facilities. The new space will also house a much larger training room, which will get rid of long lines that stretch into the hallway during midday practices.
      
      
      Renovation of Delaware Stadium began at the end of the 2018 football season. The ongoing construction is the first of several phases planned.
      
      "We are currently in the demolition phase of construction, taking a lot of the stands that will be replaced for the upcoming football season in 2019," said Shirley.
      
      
      
      The Whitney Athletic Center, which will be completed by the summer of 2020, will provide academic support and athletic training and well-being facilities for student-athletes. The center will be named for UD alumnus and Board of Trustees member Kenneth C. Whitney, Class of 1980, and his wife, Elizabeth K. Whitney, in recognition of their cornerstone gift of $10 million.
