Iconic Spaces

Cultivated across almost 150 years, our culture is deeply rooted in the spaces we share. That’s why the final pillar in Our Tomorrow is to renew and elevate campus facilities that are central to our future:

  • Places that represent UNI and welcome students and visitors to the Panther community.
  • Places that bring the campus and community together to create lifelong memories.
  • Places that sustain the vitality of our university, as well as our region and state.

Court Sports Training Facility (recently announced)

UNI received permission from the Iowa Board of Regents to begin planning a court sports training facility for the Panthers men’s and women’s basketball programs, as well as UNI’s volleyball team.

The development of this complex will provide a dedicated practice space to these programs that currently share court time at the McLeod Center and UNI’s Wellness and Recreation Center.

UNI Wrestling has a storied legacy spanning 100 years. Fundraising for a new wrestling training facility will carry the Panther Train into a brighter future.

University and UNI Athletics leadership are working with architects to develop detailed plans. The scope of this new wrestling space depends on the support of donors. The new facility will meet both existing and future needs. There will be room for mats, weight lifting, cardio, a locker room, a training room, rehabilitation space and an office for wrestling staff.

The Campanile

For years, the Campanile has been the heart of many memories — campaniling, lovely music and gatherings with friends. As the Campanile nears 100 years in 2026, it is due for care to ensure that it can continue bringing the UNI community together for the next hundred years.

The Our Tomorrow campaign has renovated the Campanile, added and restored 56 bells and aims to rejuvenate the Campanile Plaza.

With your support, we can elevate the Gallagher Bluedorn for all visitors. We will continue to provide a home for world-class performing arts for the Cedar Valley and Iowa.

Thanks to your support, the Gallagher Bluedorn has added 780 new seats and has begun construction on a series of renovations and additions.

Since it opened in 1976, our UNI-Dome has become so much more than just a building.

It’s the home of Panther football, track and field and some of the most celebrated moments in UNI Athletics. It’s a landmark in Iowa, hosting community events, concerts and the high school football championships. It’s a vital to UNI and the Cedar Valley, and the front door to UNI for over 500,000 visitors every year.

Now is time to build the UNI-Dome's legacy for the next generation. The Our Tomorrow campaign will make the most significant changes to the UNI-Dome since its construction.
