Welcome to the Comcast Center!
Comcast Center Virtual Tour
Maryland's new student activities building and home of Maryland Athletics was completed in fall 2002. The Comcast Center provides a seating capacity of 17,950 fans for basketball, and will serve as a campus site for university special events and select community events.
The Terrapins' first public event for basketball was its annual Midnight Madness celebration, followed by exhibition and regular season opening games for the men's and women's teams during November.
The 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 700 student-athletes on 27 teams. An additional 1,500-seat gym serves as home to the Terps' volleyball, gymnastics and wrestling teams, and the Nextel Heritage Hall multi-purpose room (capacity 400) is equipped to host banquets, press conferences, large meetings and serve as a pre-game dining area overlooking the competition arena.
Twenty suites provide enhanced viewing and entertainment capabilities for Maryland fans. Maryland's student seating capacity accommodates 4,000, with students ringing the first 10 rows around the floor and a majority of seats on the arena's west wall.
Comcast Center is an excellent place for alumni and fans to enjoy their favorite sports and share their common Terrapin spirit. Visitors will learn about the men and women who have made Maryland Athletics great as they stroll through the dramatic Terrapin Walk of Fame and History. And the Terrapin Team Store, located just off the soaring three-level atrium lobby, allows visitors to outfit their pride. Maryland has once again reclaimed the status of having the best student activities center and athletics home in the country.
