New UPMC Events Center a ‘Game-Changer’ for Robert Morris Athletics

Robert Morris University in Moon Township, PA unveiled its new UPMC Events Center that will begin hosting the Colonials’ basketball and volleyball programs this fall. Stone Planning and The Rooney Sports and Entertainment Group completed a feasibility study for the new facility, and was later re-engaged by RMU to guide the university through the solicitation process for private management, which led to the selection of the Oak View Group. The 4,000-seat facility also has approximately 11,000 square feet of meeting/conference space and will be used by the university and community for sporting events, concerts, conferences, and other events. The arena’s first public event will be an Evanescence concert on May 12.
