Moody Coliseum and Miller Event Center
The eye-catching renovation of iconic Moody Coliseum, which re-opened in December 2013, features new seating, entertainment areas, court improvements and infrastructure, while retaining Moody’s original ambiance. The 167,000-squarefoot complex and Dallas landmark is home to SMU men’s and women’s basketball, women’s volleyball and the pageantry of SMU academic ceremonies, as well as numerous community events. A gift from The Moody Foundation provided the impetus for the project, and the Miller Event Center, an addition on the north side of Moody Coliseum, was named in honor of David B. Miller ’72, ’73 and his wife, Carolyn, in recognition of their leadership gift to the project.
SMU’s Residential Commons complex, dedicated in May 2014, is the largest capital project in SMU’s history. The nine-acre Commons complex includes five residence halls – Armstrong Commons, Kathy Crow Commons, Crum Commons, Loyd Commons and Ware Commons – as well as the Anita and Truman Arnold Dining Commons and the 800-space Mustang Parking Center. The complex provides campus housing for an additional 1,250 students and is part of the campus-wide Residential Commons system, which also includes six commons created from existing buildings.
Mustang Band Hall
Dedicated in September 2014, the new Mustang Band Hall is five times larger than its previous space and features an expanded rehearsal hall, enhanced practice rooms and an outdoor performance plaza designed to showcase SMU’s traditional hub of campus spirit, the Mustang Band. More than 1,250 band alumni, supporters and friends contributed funds to build the 11,000-square-foot facility, located at the Dedman Center for Lifetime Sports on the southeast edge of campus.
