UREC hosts two hard-wood basketball courts with courtside seating.  Windows around the courts allow spectators to view games from all floors. 

The Pit features two lighted outdoor basketball courts open from dawn until 11 p.m. every day.  The courts are located outside of Whitaker Gym.

Whitaker Gym features two indoor hard-wood basketball courts with full bleacher seating.  Originally constructed in 1953, Whitaker Gym is named after John Clarke Whitaker, a longtime WSSU Board of Trustee member.
