Start Date: Spring 2014
Target Completion Date: First Quarter, 2016
Construction on a new multi-purpose arena, which includes a food court, academic areas and the basketball facility, began in spring 2014, with the opening expected during the first quarter of 2016. (Completion dates may vary depending on weather and unexpected delays.) The new basketball arena will seat approximately 9,500 fans, and include a number of first-class amenities to serve Ole Miss students, student-athletes and fans. The arena will take the place of the West Stadium Parking Lot and the Rebel Shop.
Construction on the university’s new parking garage (located in the same vicinity) and basketball arena will be completed in two phases, which will last from 2014-2016. During the process, parking and transportation near the construction zone will be affected, so plan ahead when accessing those areas. View a map of affected areas.
