Since its opening in March 2009, the Fieldhouse has become an integral part of the programming mix at the Watsco Center. Comprised of two sides, the building features two courts that comprise the basketball side of the facility used on a daily basis by both respective basketball teams and a Multipurpose Space that provides an additional 7,700 square feet of shell space that can be configured in a myriad of different manners.

Thus far, the versatile Multipurpose Space has been utilized for various catering events, from University receptions to Award Show after-parties, for Commencement lineups, corporate meetings, cocktail parties, lecture series, trade shows, press conferences, as well as Cheerleading and Karate competitions. With its recent installation of carpet, providing for a more sophisticated and intimate look, the Fieldhouse has become a heavily booked and noted fixture at the Watsco Center.
