The Frank Erwin Center has served as home to the Texas Men's and Women's Basketball teams since the 1977-78 season. One step inside the facility reveals an arena bathed in burnt orange and numerous banners hanging from the rafters, chornicling the rich championship tradition of Texas Basketball. With the completion of 28 luxury suites at the top of the arena section, the capacity for the Erwin Center has increased to 16,540 (largest in the Big 12 Conference). The arena also features a new Jumbotron scoreboard and a LCD screen that loops around the top of the arena section. Concession and restroom areas have been remodeled and moved to widen the concourse areas. Visible for miles when orange floodlights illuminate the facility at night, the Frank Erwin Center is a beacon on UT's campus. The building is named for former UT Board of Regents member Frank Erwin, who was instrumental in The University making great strides in the expansion of its facilities during his term.
