Quick Facts
Year Opened 1990
Capacity 9,882

Harry A. Gampel Pavilion, UConn’s on-campus domed facility serves as the home court of the men's and women's basketball and women’s volleyball program.

Gampel Pavilion opened in January of 1990 and totals more than 171,000 square feet in the domed area. An additional 39,000 square feet comprise the attached Wolff-Zackin Natatorium (including a 50- meter Olympic size swimming pool).

The entire project cost $28 million and measures 320 feet in diameter, in the circular domed arena area. The aluminum dome of the Gampel Pavilion towers more than 130 feet in the air from ground level.

During the summer of 1996, the original capacity of Gampel Pavilion (8,241) was increased with additional seating placed above each of the four entrance quadrants of the building. The new 'sellout' for UConn Basketball in Storrs is 9,882, making the UConn facility the largest capacity on-campus basketball arena in New England and the Northeast.

Gampel Pavilion, which is an iconic landmark in the middle of campus, provides the UConn basketball and women’s volleyball programs with one of the most intimate on-campus game atmospheres in the entire nation.

Prior to the start of the 1999-2000 season, two new scoreboards were installed in Gampel Pavilion. Both boards contain complete player lineup information (points, fouls) as well as full color game video boards and message centers. The 'Alumni Court' main arena floor is constructed of 'spring aire' wood.

The Huskies' gameday locker rooms include wood grain 'pro style' individual lockers as well as an adjoining varsity team lounge and audio-visual area, complete with large screen television, hook-up for scouting and game review, and a stereo sound system.
