RMU announces the UPMC Events Center, which will break ground in July 2017. The building will be the new home for men’s and women’s basketball and women’s volleyball. Inside the 140,000 square-foot arena will sit the Peoples Court, as well as an 11,000 square-foot conference and meeting space. On the other side of campus, a separate building, the new Student Recreation Center is currently being built, and will hold two indoor intramural basketball courts, a fully-equipped weight room and cardio room, two rooms for Pilates and other exercise training, and men's and women's locker rooms, all for general student use.
