Patrick Gym

The Roy L. Patrick Gymnasium is a 3,228 seat (3,266 for men's and women's basketball) multi-purpose arena in Burlington, Vermont. It was built in 1963. It is used mainly as the home arena of the Vermont Catamounts men's and women's basketball teams. It has been the site of the 2004, 2005, 2007, 2010, and 2013 America East men's basketball tournament championship game, as the higher seed in the final hosts the game. The championship games were all televised on ESPN or ESPN2. Vermont has consistently been among the America East leaders in home attendance and in 2004-05, it became the only America East men's basketball program to sell out every game for an entire season.

The gym is also used as the venue for the Vermont State Division I Boys and Girls Basketball Championship semifinals and final. Patrick Gym was the host of the 2004-05 Boston Celtics Training Camp. In the 1960s, the Celtics played several exhibition games at Patrick Gym.

Patrick Gym is also a concert venue, seating up to 4,000. It can also accommodate conventions and trade shows; there are 22,251 square feet (2,067.2 m2) of arena floor space, with an additional 31,218 square feet (2,900.2 m2) at the indoor track and 36,189 square feet (3,362.1 m2) at the indoor tennis courts, both of which are adjacent to Patrick Gymnasium. The current bleachers at Patrick Gym were installed in 1982, and new lighting and the current floor were installed in 1990.
