Strahan Arena at the University Events Center, an $8.8 million, 7,200-seat facility was completed for use in 1982 for both the men's and women's basketball teams, as well as the volleyball team.
Construction on Strahan Arena at the University Events Center started in November 1979. The Arena is located adjacent to Jowers Center, which originally housed the Texas State athletic administrative offices. The $4.7-million newly renovated Jowers Center houses coach's offices and locker rooms for baseball, softball, men's and women's golf, soccer and tennis. Additionally, the facility has racquetball and handball courts, a gymnastics competition area, two full size practices courts, weight rooms, training rooms, a student lounge, and laundry and equipment facilities.
Renovations for men's and women's basketball, volleyball, team meeting areas, locker rooms and video facilities were completed in 2002 as part of Phase I of the Bobcat Legacy Campaign. A spacious reception area, sparkling coaches offices, a fully functional conference room with proper video equipment, renovated locker rooms, and a student-athlete study area / lounge highlight the renovations.
