The Pavilion opened in 1986 as a multipurpose recreational facility and arena. The Pavilion is an eye-catching structure with its hyperbolic paraboloid roof dominating the skyline and serves as the home to Villanova Men's and Women's Basketball. The game court is a state of the art portable maple wood surface.
The Pavilion is also the host for university commencement, concerts, trade shows, college and job fairs, high school graduations and World Team Tennis.
The Pavilion features four multipurpose courts and batting cages which can be used for basketball, volleyball, baseball and softball. The Pavilion also includes a five lane indoor running track, long jump pit and pole vault area.
