Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


“Time to Shine” capital campaign for memphis athletics

What does the campaign include?

The Time to Shine Campaign is a campaign for facilities. The football portion of our project will include an indoor practice facility, coaches’ offices, and spaces for enhanced student-athlete academic, nutrition and athletic development. These enhancements will be incorporated into our existing football complex on the Park Avenue Campus.

Also on our Park Avenue Campus, the men’s basketball portion of the project will feature a comprehensive training facility. This stand-alone facility will encompass offices, locker rooms, weight room, training facilities, basketball practice facility, as well as spaces for our student-athletes to study, train, eat and develop. In addition, the history of Memphis basketball will be showcased via a large atrium in the grand lobby known as Traditions Hall.

Why is the Time to Shine campaign so important to the future of UofM?

For the University of Memphis to stay relevant and to compete for championships we must invest in our facilities. The new practice facilities will represent a major commitment from our University and community signaling we are committed to competing at the highest level.
