The University of Central Florida held a ribbon cutting Friday for its unveiling of a new football locker room as well as the Garvy Nutrition Center.

The Kenneth G. Dixon Athletics Village received the latest of upgrades as athletic director Danny White continues to fundraise for the greatest student-athlete experience in the country.


The Garvy Nutrition Center, formerly the recruiting lounge, will serve as the university’s first training table to improve the health of the student-athletes. A weekly program and partnership with the UCF College of Medicine began before the renovation as the fundraising campaign took off.

“On behalf of our entire athletic department and our student-athletes, we are so grateful for Bob Garvy’s generous gift to support the creation of the Garvy Center for Student-Athlete Nutrition,” White said.

“Bob, Carol, and their family have been amazing supporters of the Knights for a very long time and we greatly appreciate everything they’ve done for the Black and Gold over the years.”

The completely renovated Rosengren Locker Room features a new lighting, color, and design scheme – a dramatic contrast from the original wood-finished lockers and warm lighting. Each player will have their own locker with cubbies for uniforms, pads, personal items, and individual chairs.
