Located at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, Harry A. Gampel Pavilion has a seating capacity of over 10,000. It's home to the UConn men's and women's basketball teams as well as the women's volleyball team. Hanging from the walls of the arena are large banners showcasing the successes of the men's and women's basketball teams, both of which have won multiple NCAA championships. The Gampel Pavilion opened in 1990 as the largest on-campus arena in the New England region. Its namesake was a UConn graduate, community leader and philanthropist who donated a considerable sum to help fund the arena. The venue underwent an expansion in 1996 and another in 2017 to update the facilities. To reserve a spot for an upcoming Gampel Pavilion event, buy your tickets at StubHub.
