State Board of Regents approves Iowa football locker room, gymnastics and cheer facilities projects

During their September 2023 meeting, the Iowa Board of Regents approved the design, project description, and budgeting to renovate the locker room at the Stew and LeNore Hansen Football Performance Center.

The renovations would cost roughly $2.5 million and would be funded by gifts to, and earnings by the UI athletics department. The current locker room was built 11 years ago and has seen heavy use since then.

The UI also made a similar request to build a new facility for the gymnastics and spirit squad, a request that was also approved. According to the meeting agenda, the new building would be 32,700 square feet and cost $20 million, also to be funded by gifts and earnings.
