University Center

If you happen to enter the Southeastern Louisiana University campus from the west, you can’t help but notice the Lions’ trademark athletic facility dominating the horizon. Southeastern’s multi-purpose University Center provides an impressive home for Lion and Lady Lion basketball as well as the volleyball squad.
Built in 1982 at a cost of $16.3 million, the UC has seating capacity for 7,500 and hosts many other functions including Southeastern’s commencement, a variety of concerts and community events, and the circus. For home basketball games, there’s no denying the electric atmosphere in “The Jungle.” During the 2011-12 basketball season, a new electronic message board was added to the press row area to improve the aesthetics.
