The cost of the arena being built at 67th and Center Streets has jumped to $87.9 million. It had been $76.3 million.
Erin Owen, director of university communications, says UNO intends to pay for the $11.6 million in additional costs with $4 million more in bonds, $4 million more in private donations and $3.6 million in university funds.
UNO planned to ask the University of Nebraska Board of Regents to approve the revised cost and a financing plan that asks permission to issue up to $73 million in bonds.
