Alumni Arena is a multi-purpose arena in Amherst, New York. The arena is home to the University at Buffalo men's and women's basketball teams, the women's volleyball team, and wrestling team. The facility currently seats 6,100 people.
The Recreation and Athletics Complex (RAC) on the University's North Campus includes Alumni Arena, a $12.5 million Phase II Building and a $1.5 million outdoor playing fields complex. Alumni Arena's main gymnasium is home to the Bulls men's and women's basketball teams, wrestling team and the women's volleyball team. The largest "free-floating" hardwood floor in the United States at the time it was built, it features basketball, volleyball and badminton courts circled by a 200-meter track and seating for 6,100 spectators following renovations during the summer of 2004. The arena used to seat more than 8,000 people, but a renovation project funded by the Blue & White club reduced the seating to 6,100 by eliminating bleachers and adding chairbacks.
The student section's location also changed with the renovations. Before the renovations, the students used to generally sit behind the scorer's table, from baseline to baseline, except immediately behind The Players' benches. For basketball, Alumni Arena ranks as the second-largest on-campus facility in the state of New York, behind only Syracuse's Carrier Dome. For volleyball matches, a specially designed sport-court from the 1993 World University Games is utilized.
