New Athlete Locker Rooms
The university sold stadium seats for $479 each
(a name plaque goes on the seat after renovation)
These seats are interconnected and come in pairs of blue or gold.
3,000 seats available

New Weight Room with
LED Ribbon Board/Center Scoreboard
600 seats have been added to the upper level and 400 on the floor
A change in the structural design of the ceiling will provide added noise and focus it on the court. This was per Coach Ben Howland's request to increase home court advantage.
What happened to the old Pauley Pavilion??
The construction team did not tear down the old facility. The facility is actually under the new glass outside exterior, but only modernized. The Pauley Family was part of this decision and said "the new facility will always have a part of the old stadium in it."
With the glass exterior, the new Pauley Pavilion will stand out, but still work within the "fabric" of the university.
Home to UCLA's basketball, volleyball,
and gymnastic teams
Where were home games played for volleyball, basketball, and gymnastic teams of UCLA?
Men's basketball played at the LA Sports Arena and Honda Center
All other teams played on campus at John Wooden Center
Before the pavilion was originally built in 1965, the teams played in the Student Activities Center. Back then, students didn't refer to it as the SAC. It was called the B.O. Barn.
The first game ever played at Pauley Pavilion was on November 27, 1965
Pauley Pavilion was introduced to the public at the June 1965 commencement ceremony
Pauley is More than just a Basketball Court
More restrooms and accessibility
The new Pauley Pavilion has four times as many women's restrooms as before, and twice as many men's restrooms located on all four sides of the arena.
New concessions include California Pizza Kitchen, Subway, Jamba Juice, a panini bar, a "grab-and-go" mart and a Joe Brewin coffeehouse.
The outdoor marketplace will continue to sell popcorn and peanuts and will also feature an area for food trucks.
A members-only Pavilion Club will be the only place that sells alcohol in the building, located on the north mezzanine.
The old Pauley was out of compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act concerning the amount of elevators in the facility that large. The new Pauley has three elevators instead of one. There is now much more space for people with wheelchairs to visit the facility.

The two schools chose this as the first game after the renovation because Coach Wooden coached at both schools.
