Comcast Center

Maryland's new home for Terrapin Athletics was completed in the fall of 2002, and has already provided a season of toppled attendance records and athletic achievements. Comcast Center provides a seating capacity of 17,950 fans and serves as a campus site for university special events and select community events.

The University of Maryland wrestling team competes in a new 1,500-seat gymnasium, creating a loud, exciting atmosphere for the Terrapin team to use a decided home-court advantage.

Comcast Center houses the university's athletics administration offices and includes a 7,000-square-foot Academic Support Center, providing an enhanced study atmosphere for the school's near-700 student-athletes on 25 teams. The Nextel Heritage Hall multi-purpose room (capacity 400) is equipped to host banquets, press conferences, meetings and serve as a pre-game restaurant suite overlooking the competition arena.  Comcast Center is an excellent place for alumni and fans to enjoy their favorite sports and share in their common Terrapin spirit.  Maryland has once again reclaimed the status of having the best student activities center and athletics home in the country.
