Estimated Cost:




The Penn State Board of Trustees approved in investing in the renovation of Beaver Stadium, , which will grow revenue-generating opportunities, transform the fan and community experience, and fuel the future funding for all 31 athletics programs at Penn State.


Initial construction has prioritized safety and accessibility through the widening of select concourses and the installation of new escalators, as well as field lighting performance and videoboard replacements. Winterization work also is ongoing, which entails the insulation of pipes and other upgrades to allow the building to be occupied when temperatures are below freezing, giving Penn State the ability to host a College Football Playoff game beginning in 2024 and other potential events beyond Penn State football games in the winter months.

The project plans encompass three distinct phases over the course of the next three football offseasons and will offer a new mix of seating options and improved amenities, such as restrooms and concessions.

In alignment with Penn State’s commitment to global sustainability, the Beaver Stadium renovations will be designed with a high standard for energy efficiency, construction and eventual operation of the renovated stadium and with a commitment to achieving LEED certification.

Importantly, a new welcome center is planned for the community that will include a 21,000-square-foot facility for events and many other uses, serve as a connection point for all in the community, and augment enrollment efforts for prospective students and future student-athletes.

The campus visit experience continues to be one of the most important drivers for prospective students, and the new center enables customization by leveraging technology to create visits that are personalized, immersive and showcase Penn State’s areas of distinction.
