The project would include construction of a student center, a conditioning center, training room and student lounge. Coaches and administrative offices would be renovated, and the retail store and hospitality room would be expanded.

The last major project at the arena was in 2003-04.

The project is one of the priorities of the Wichita State Foundation’s $250 million fundraising effort called Shock the World.
