The Cox Pavilion is a 78,300-square-foot (7,270 m2), multi-purpose indoor arena on the University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus, connected to the Thomas & Mack Center, which serves as the home court for the UNLV volleyball program.
The pavilion is a two-level structure. The ground floor features new men's and women's locker facilities, player lounges and practice courts for basketball and volleyball. The top level is a multi-purpose venue with a seating capacity of 2,500 to 3,100 for sporting events.
In addition to UNLV athletic events, the Cox Pavilion hosts a variety of events, including small concerts, boxing events, theater-style family shows, corporate parties, trade shows and more.
On November 15, 2007, the Cox Pavilion played host to Nevada's Democratic Presidential Debate.
Cox Communications and the Thomas & Mack Center formed a partnership that brought the new facility to UNLV and the Las Vegas community in 2001. As part of a $5 million agreement, Cox Communications secured the naming rights for the facility as well as opportunities for sponsorship and hospitality.
