Auburn University’s new basketball arena is a 252,000 sf event and practice facility sited between Jordan-Hare Stadium and a new student housing project. The four-level brick-and-glass arena is designed in a transitional style to bridge between Auburn’s traditional campus and a state-of-the-art interior featuring the latest audio-visual equipment and information technology. Two distinctive characteristics are a shallow barrel-vaulted roof reminiscent of historic field houses and a colonnade of suites facing the football stadium. The new arena seats up to 9,232 people for athletic events, concerts and commencement ceremonies. It also houses new ticket offices, coaches and administrative offices, scholarship lounge, team store and the future Auburn University Hall of Fame.
