Season-ticket holders taking the University of Dayton Arena Renovation Feasibility Survey in recent days have seen images of proposed changes to the arena.

The artist renderings show a wider concourse circling the arena, new club seating at the top of the lower bowl on each side of the arena and terrace suites at each corner of the arena. The images show potential concepts and are subject to change. They don’t necessarily mean UD will take this route with the renovations.

“The early reaction to the survey has been very strong,” Athletic Director Neil Sullivan said. “Our response rate to date has been very high.”
