Finneran Pavilion

Finneran Pavilion


Finneran Pavilion officially opened its doors in October 2018. The basketball-centric arena provides a high-quality, game-day experience for Villanova students, faculty, staff, alumni and fans. Finneran Pavilion will provide an atmosphere befitting our elite Men’s and Women’s Basketball programs and will honor the storied history of Villanova Basketball.

Finneran Pavilion is a $65 million, fully donor funded renovation, which was led by 20 leadership gifts of $1 million or more and 130 major gifts of $100,000 or more. The lead gift was presented by William "Bill" Finneran, a 1963 Villanova School of Business graduate with a degree in Economics.

The upgrades include McMahon Way, an outdoor plaza for pregame and postgame activities; a relocated main entrance that will serve as a gathering place for fans; a Hall of Fame, with graphics and memorabilia celebrating the rich history of Villanova Athletics; a 360-degree concourse hosting a variety of concessions, merchandise stands and other fan amenities.
