The University at Buffalo Department of Athletics unveiled its facilities master plan on Thursday, revealing Athletic Director Danny White’s long-term vision to achieve the growth and facilities improvements necessary to consistently compete for championships.
Outlined is a comprehensive, yet flexible, master plan that addresses both near-term and long-term goals and objectives for the facilities infrastructure. Highlighted by a field house adjacent to UB Stadium, the aggressive plan lists over a dozen projects that will change the landscape of athletics at the University at Buffalo and Western New York.
“These are exciting times to be involved with UB Athletics,” White said. “We expect this visual plan to increase excitement with the donor base and we will work as aggressively as possible to secure the necessary commitments to move forward with the high priority projects such as the field house.”
As New York’s largest, most comprehensive university, and the only FBS Athletics Department in the SUNY System, UB Athletics is poised for considerable growth in the coming years.
While certain projects have been identified as “high priority,” there is no exact timetable for their completion. Some projects are already underway. Work on the state-of-the-art training room in UB Stadium is scheduled to begin next week with a completion date expected this summer.
