UPMC Events Center
A Showplace for the Colonials
The 4,000-plus-seat Peoples Court is a cornerstone of the university's strategic plan and replaces a venue that is more than 30 years old. RMU's successful NCAA Division I athletics programs bring national media exposure, and an attractive modern facility will elevate the school's image. The best scholar-athletes now expect a level of amenities that the new arena provides, including improved strength and conditioning facilities, locker rooms, and a full practice court.
A New Home for Major Events
In addition to hosting home games for three NCAA Division I teams, the UPMC Events Center offers the region an attractive new venue for public speakers, conventions, expos, concerts, graduation ceremonies, and family entertainment options. It also hosts the university's annual convocation and commencement ceremonies, which outgrew the previous location.
Conference and Meeting Center
With an additional 11,000 square feet of space attached to the main arena, the UPMC Events Center provides the expanding campus community with new classroom and meeting space and offers the Pittsburgh West/Airport Corridor conference facilities featuring catering, state-of-the-art technology, and customizable options for a variety of functions.
