The Wolstein Center
The Bert L. and Iris S. Wolstein Center (formerly the CSU Convocation Center) opened its doors on November 1, 1991. It was renamed in 2005 in honor of Bert L. Wolstein, a 1953 graduate of the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and a 2003 recipient of Cleveland State's Distinguished Alumni Award. The Wolstein Center has become the one of the most exciting multi-purpose, college-owned facilities in the country. The beautiful $55 million state-of-the-art, full-service, multi-purpose facility means many things to many facets of the Cleveland community.
To the Cleveland State athletics, it means fruition of a dream- - a home for CSU's basketball teams. The arena has a seating capacity of 13,610. Every seat in the basketball configuration is a theater-style cushioned chair, approximately 3,000 of which can be rolled back to create a larger playing surface for other indoor events.
Six locker rooms, including permanent pro style locker facilities for the CSU men's and women's basketball teams, and several smaller rooms surround the main area. Also included in the surrounding rooms are the varsity weight room—where the student-athletes train throughout their seasons, the Focus Room—a private sized theatre for team film session, The Peter Lewis Academic Center—student-athlete study lounge and computer labratory, the Viking Lounge—a relaxing, family game room, and the Viking Lodge—5th floor entertainment gala for Big Green booster and supporters.
Contained in the Pavilion is a large auxiliary gym which serves as a practice facility for the varsity basketball teams and other designated athletic activities
