Memorial Gymnasium

210 Emmet Street South, Charlottesville, VA 22903

(434) 924-3791


Home of the UVA volleyball and wrestling teams, The University of Virginia's venerable old Memorial Gymnasium was renovated in 2005, courtesy of a gift of more than $1.5 million from an anonymous donor. The gift provided $845,500 for extensive improvements to 79-year-old "Mem Gym," which was home to the U.Va. basketball program for 42 seasons before University Hall opened in 1965. It was also the past home of the Virginia swim and dive teams and indoor track teams. The renovations to Mem Gym included improved lighting and sound systems, a new scoreboard, new bleachers, new windows, resurfacing and remarking of the floor (the gym's original floor was replaced in 1992), an improved air-flow system, a new divider curtain and a fresh coat of paint. Renovations were also made for the general-use men's and women's locker rooms and for the gym's lobby and other common spaces. Memberships are available, but eligibility hinges on a direct affiliation with the University of Virginia.
