SECU Arena is a 5,200-seat multi-purpose arena on the Towson University campus in Towson, Maryland. The arena was completed and opened in 2013, and now hosts the basketball, volleyball and gymnastics teams, replacing the Towson Center. The arena has 340 club seats, four private suites and 104 court side seats. Upon opening, the arena was awarded LEED Gold certification for energy use, lighting, water and material use, and other sustainable features.
In addition to being the home of several Towson sports teams, the arena also serves several other functions. It has been used as a concert arena for artists such as the Backstreet Boys, Gavin DeGraw, and Juicy J. Since opening, the arena has been host to an annual performance by the Harlem Globetrotters. Additionally, both the university and local Baltimore County high schools use the facility for their commencement ceremonies.
