New facility for Husky basketball, fully funded by donors, will open in August 2025

Crews have broken ground on the 36,000 square-foot, $60 million facility.

The new training facility for men’s and women’s Husky basketball will welcome recruits, fans and families to watch practices.

June brings the sun, the end of the academic year and, for Husky basketball, a new home. Construction progresses this month on a $60 million, fully donor-funded basketball center. August 2025 is the anticipated completion date of the new facility, which will have two 9,800-square-foot practice courts available 24 hours a day for both the men’s and women’s programs.

It also will feature a skywalk viewing area above the courts for recruits, fans and families to watch practices. That’s in addition to a foyer that will highlight legendary moments and players from Husky hoops history.

The building will also provide new internal connections between the floor level of Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion and Strength and Conditioning Center in Graves Annex, which will better serve all student-athletes.

Investment in Husky basketball has long been seen as critical to support the UW’s future competitive success as it enters play in the Big Ten this fall. Husky donors stepped forward in a remarkable way to make this facility a reality. Among the donors were Husky basketball alumni and legends, who contributed more than $1 million.
