The staff of the Coliseum will provide the highest quality customer service and maximum value in all that they do.
It has been called one of the finest basketball facilities in college athletics. The University of North Texas Coliseum, or "The Super Pit," is home to the North Texas Men's and Women's basketball teams. Built in 1973, the Coliseum is designed for multipurpose use and has excellent viewing sight lines from any seat in the arena.
The arena, designed for functional flexibility, features aesthetic and technical excellence for both patrons and performers. The physical configuration evolved by combining the requirements of two diverse seating layouts; one for theatrical stage seating, and the other for coliseum-in-the-round seating.
A third major configuration may be constructed by locating a stage at one end of the arena floor. All of these major seating situations have been satisfied. The acoustics, lighting, speaker systems and various riggings are all suitable for the three configurations.
The Coliseum has 9,797 upholstered permanent theater type seats plus forty-eight positions for wheelchairs. With additional meeting space located on the lower level, the Coliseum is large enough to accommodate a wide range of activities. Besides basketball games, commencements and concerts, there have also been luncheons, workshops, dances, camps and competitions. Versatility is a key word in describing the Coliseum.
The east entrances to the Coliseum, located on Avenue D, are ground-level and allow easy access to the venue for our guests with special needs. In addition, there are limited handicapped parking spaces as well as a special needs drop-off area on this side of the Coliseum.
There are no events scheduled.
The concourse level consists of 43,685 square feet of versatile space as well as:
Due to the unique design of the building and the absence of structural pillars in the arena, every seat in the house has an unobstructed view of the arena floor. Floor space and seating can vary depending on event configurations.
794 square feet of adaptable space used to host small meetings, television and radio interviews, and hospitality rooms
6,000 square feet of flexible space with 23 foot ceiling clearance, used to host a variety of events
