Mattingly notes Syracuse is looking to spend an additional $100 million on improvements to the dome, along with a $50 million renovation of Archbold Gymnasium.

“The Campus Framework will allow the University to better meet the needs and expectations of today’s college students and provide an unrivaled collegiate experience,” chairman of the Syracuse University Board of Trustees Steven Barnes said in a statement.

“The Board is eager to gain additional feedback from students, faculty and staff to help us refine and finalize these projects. We look forward to continuing this important conversation.”

There is currently no timetable for the new roof or renovations to be completed.

Syracuse is set to announce an official time frame for the project later this summer.
