Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, has announced plans for a $40 million renovation of its basketball arena.

The university says Timmons Arena, its basketball home for nearly three decades, will be transformed into a state-of-the-art facility that will dramatically enhance the game day experience for fans and students.

The renovations are scheduled to begin in April 2024 and will include: a reimagining of the arena’s entrance and lobby, upgrades to seating options, the addition of premium and luxury box seating, improved audio and visual components, enhanced box office support, a children’s play area, new visiting team locker room and new administrative offices.

The facility will have eight private suites and two-party suites, a hospitality deck, courtside seating and a private VIP lounge, and enhanced concessions. The capacity of the renovated arena will be 2,750 and feature 360-degree concourse access to lower-bowl seating.

The renovated arena is scheduled to reopen in fall 2025.

The architect is Betsch Associates, and the contractor is Harper General Contractors.
