Cameron Indoor Stadium, which just celebrated it’s 75th anniversary in January, is the latest project to begin construction as renovations are under way to the historic basketball arena. Most known for it’s small and intimate environment, the university wants to emphasize that the size of the stadium will not be expanding. They will only be renovating the lobby in the south entrance, the area outside the arena, and installing a new sprinkler system. The lobby will be modified to improve fan traffic, hospitality, and game experience and they will also add a space for Duke sports history and memorabilia.

The renovations will take around 15 months to complete. Cameron Indoor Stadium is home to several Duke athletic teams, including men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, wrestling, and hosts many other events on campus throughout the year.
