Charger Gymnasium, 300 Boston Post Road, University Of New Haven, New Haven, CT

The University of New Haven was founded in 1920 as the New Haven YMCA Junior College, a division of Northeastern University; it became New Haven College in 1926.[1]
The Gymnasium wasn't built until the 1960's.
Located on UNH's North Campus, directly across Boston Post Road from the main UNH campus, Charger Gymnasium has long been the game site for the UNH men's and women's basketball and volleyball teams. It houses locker rooms for all of the Chargers' varsity athletic programs, as well as the athletic administration offices, the sports medicine room, equipment room and the Tony Sparano Training Center.

The building has hosted numerous NCAA Regional competitions throughout the years, as well as the Special Olympics, UNH Convocations, a number of musical concerts, and camps & clinics for the surrounding community, among other events.
