Stephen C. O'Connell Center

The “O-Dome” is home to the Gators’ men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, gymnastics, indoor track, and swimming and diving teams. The Stephen C. O’Connell Center, nicknamed the “O-Dome,” is a 12,000-seat multi-purpose arena located just west of the football stadium, a.k.a. “the Swamp.” The arena opened in 1980. The O’Connell Center contains indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and it regularly hosts such events as career fairs, graduation ceremonies, concerts, dance marathons, home shows, and guest speakers. Visitors can see the inner workings of the facility on non-event days.
