Walter Sillers Coliseum

The coliseum is a round structure 182 feet in diameter. For basketball and arena events, there are seats for more than 3,500; for platform and stage events the seating exceeds 5,000. In addition to classrooms and offices, the coliseum provides adequate dressing room facilities for participants in major and minor sports, and for visiting athletic teams. The name bespeaks appreciation of the role of the late Walter Sillers of Rosedale as a primary proponent of legislation which authorized the University in 1924, and who was largely responsible for its location in Cleveland.
