Two lead gifts – a $20 million gift from the Moody Foundation and a $10 million commitment from SMU trustee David B. Miller ’72, ’73 and his wife Carolyn Lacy Miller – will help provide an extensive expansion and renovation of Moody Coliseum.
Moody Coliseum is a campus and Dallas landmark that is home to the pageantry of SMU Commencement as well as numerous speaking, athletics and community events such as concerts and high school graduations.
The project will feature new premium seating as well as courtside retractable seating designated for students and renovation of the entry lobby and concourses. Technology improvements will include new video boards, scoreboards, sound system, broadcast capabilities and heating and cooling systems. In addition, office suites, restrooms and locker rooms will be upgraded. Additional donors will be sought for the $40 million project.
Project planning and design will begin immediately. The construction start date has not yet been determined.
