Basketball Practice Facility
Planned as a 34,500-square-foot four-story structure, OSU’s impressive new practice facility will contain two regulation basketball courts modeled after facilities at the universities of Florida and Kentucky. The courts will occupy the first and third floors of the building, along with locker rooms, satellite training and medical areas, and service and mechanical spaces.
The alternate floors—second and fourth—will consist of 2,000-square-foot partial floors containing coach and program staff offices. These spaces run the length of the building and offer panoramic views of the court below. Together, the court and program space create a "home" where the sense of family that is the distinctive edge for every OSU team can be fostered. A two-story glass atrium, strikingly illuminated at night, will serve as the main entrance and feature a Basketball Hall of Fame highlighting the greatest achievements and players of OSU’s past—and future! A mural stretching to the height of the atrium will celebrate the legacy—and the terrific student-athletes and coaches—of Oregon State basketball. Download Brochure

"The new first-rate practice facilities will support our student athletes and will add to the exceptional athletic environment on OSU’s campus.

"OSU has a winning basketball history, which means you’re not creating
a culture, you’re reinvigorating it. This is a one-time investment with
exponential returns for reviving OSU as a basketball powerhouse and
creating a national reputation for the university."
