Nutrition and Dining Center
Alabama Athletics is constantly evaluating ways to improve our student-athletes' experience at the University of Alabama as well as the ways that we can help them be champions on and off the fields and courts. The nutrition program for our student-athletes is vital to their health and performance. The Athletics Department is excited about the work that has begun on a comprehensive 2-story dining facility. Once complete, the 22,000 square foot facility will be the nutrition hub for our over 500 student-athletes as it will serve all sports.
A project like this will truly enhance our student-athletes experience as we will be able to provide a space for all team meals before games and consistently meet their individual and team nutritional needs. The current estimate for this project is approximately $14 million dollars and we will certainly need your help to make this a reality.
