   University of Maryland - Cole Field House
Cole Field House is home to the University of Maryland Terrapins, particularly the men's and women's basketball teams. (Note: A terrapin is a diamondback turtle... and yes, they can be fierce.) The enclosed arena also hosts the University of Maryland graduation ceremonies, annual campus concerts, and the high school basketball state championships. Cole Field House's moderate capacity (14,596) permits its location in the middle of campus next to the Stamp Student Union.

For two decades after it was built in 1955, Cole Field House was the largest college gymnasium on the East Coast with a capacity of 12,000. This arena was on the leading edge of the emerging mainstream popularity of college hoops. It has been the site of many NCAA championship games and matches; the men's basketball Final Four in 1966 and 1970; wrestling in 1960, 1972, 1978, 1987, and 1990; and women's volleyball in 1990.

Cole Field House continues to host sell-out crowds for home basketball games. Although too small to host a college tournament event today, Cole Field House still maintains its charm. Spectators in the brightly-painted red wooden seats truly feel a part of the action, whether it is men's basketball, women's basketball, a concert, or graduation. Thankfully, the University of Maryland is dedicated to keeping the spirit and nostalgia of this great gymnasium alive and well.
