About KSU Convocation Center

The Kennesaw State Convocation Center is the largest facility on Kennesaw State’s Campus. The 3,866-seat arena opened in 2005 and is home to the Owls men's and women's basketball teams, the volleyball team, the Athletic department's administrative offices and the Health Promotion and Physical Education administrative offices.

Located on the Kennesaw State campus across from Kennesaw Hall and the campus green, this spacious facility can accommodate fans for concerts, seminars and other entertainment and business events. The facility has hosted numerous events including athletic competitions, competitive cheer events, youth camps, tennis events, college and high school commencements and many other academic gatherings.

The Convocation Center underwent many updates in the summer of 2012, including a Daktronics video wall. The facility also features the Hospitality Suite that is located on the third floor of the venue and can serve as a VIP suite. The Suite is currently used for various donor events on game nights or other VIP events as needed.
