UD focused on $750M capital campaign for campus upgrades

Delaware– The University of Delaware (UD) is continuing a $750 million capital campaign focused on additions to the STAR Campus, the recently created Biden Institute and upgrades to the Delaware Stadium. The university has already raised $500 million. UD will construct a new building to house the Biden Institute and expand the School of Public Policy and Administration.


The first phase of the stadium upgrade will focus on the home-side bleachers and include the construction of a stadium club and a new press box, installation of chair-back seating in the middle three sections, and upgrades to restrooms and concession stands. An athletic center and a plaza will be built in front of the stadium. The STAR Campus will be built for graduate and doctoral students. The University hopes to fund the project they’ve termed graduate city through a public-private partnership. The exact cost of this project is unknown as it is still being developed. UD also announced plans for a $156 million biopharmaceutical lab, which will join other proposed projects at the site, including the Chemours building, a 10-story tower and the existing health sciences complex.
