McDonough ArenaMcDonough Arena

Georgetown's home for Hoya Athletics, McDonough Gymnasium, since it opened in 1952, has housed the university's athletics administration offices, sports medicine and training room facilities, varsity locker rooms, and coaches' offices. Within the footprint of this historic brick and concrete structure, McDonough Arena is home to the women's basketball and volleyball teams. The men's basketball team practices and plays a limited number of contests at McDonough.

McDonough provides seating for 2,500 fans for basketball, and serves as a frequent campus site for university special events and select community events. In addition, McDonough is a frequent gathering place for alumni, parents and fans to share their common Georgetown spirit prior to and following their favorite Hoya athletic event.

The building has played host to one of President Dwight Eisenhower's inaugural balls, dignitaries of many nations, bishops, academics, many graduations, convocations, as well as concerts by Count Basie, the Who, the Grateful Dead, and Bruce Springsteen.

The Gymnasium is named for Rev. Vincent S. McDonough, SJ, moderator of athletics from 1916-1928. His portrait adorns the visitors' lobby where dozens of Georgetown's national trophies and memorabilia are displayed.
