Maryland's new home for Terrapin Athletics was completed in the fall of 2002 and has already provided seven seasons of toppled attendance records and memories on the hardwood. Comcast Center provides a seating capacity of 17,950 fans for basketball, and serves as a campus site for university special events and select community events.
Twenty suites provide enhanced viewing and entertainment capabilities for Maryland fans. Maryland's student section accommodates 4,000 of the Terps' perennial ardent supporters. Students fill the first 10 rows that ring the arena floor and a majority of seats on the arena's west wall - which at an intimidating 35-degree incline provides the Terrapins' with a unique home court advantage.
Comcast Center houses the university's athletics administration offices and includes a 7,000-square-foot Academic Support Center, providing an enhanced study atmosphere for the school's nearly 750 student-athletes on 27 teams. An additional 1,500-seat gymnasium serves as home to the Terps' volleyball, gymnastics and wrestling teams, and Sprint Heritage Hall multi-purpose room is equipped to host banquets, press conferences, meetings and serve as a pregame restaurant suite overlooking the competition arena.
