$31.5 million Student-Athlete development facility at Rice Stadium, Texas


Rice University Board of Trustees has approved a proposal to build a student-athlete performance and development building in the north end of Rice Stadium with investment of $31.5 million.


This building will provide new all-sport strength-and-conditioning, sports medicine and football facilities for the Rice Owls.

The $31.5 million project includes a 60,000-square-foot, two-story structure that will house a weight room, a home team locker room, coaching and staff offices, an auditorium, a football team lounge and areas for training and sports medicine that include hydrotherapy, plunge pools and exam rooms. The weight room and sports medicine areas will be available to student-athletes from all sports at Rice. 

The new building will have a glass wall on the side facing the football field that offers a view of the weight rooms on the ground and second floors. Part of the $31.5 million cost includes a $500,000 project to relocate electrical switchgear in that area; storm and sewer lines will be rerouted.
