The Arena is a new “front door” for the UO campus, and a stunning centerpiece for the University’s storied athletic program. The facility seats over 12,000 for basketball, or as many as 12,784 for center-stage concerts. A glass curtainwall exterior creates views from the concourses around most of the perimeter of the building. Hoffman built the arena with six huge trusses spanning 200’ from end to end to support the roof, creating a design with no obstructed seats.
