The Recreation, IntraMural and Athletic Complex (RIMAC) is the cornerstone of UC San Diego's sports facilities. This nearly-200,000-square-foot facility is located just south of the 12-acre North Campus Recreation Area Field on the northwest corner of campus.
Opened in January of 1995, RIMAC is a multi-purpose facility with the most advanced forms of quality control, state-of-the-art equipment and a strong staff commitment to customer service. Every room in RIMAC is climate controlled and many of the spaces feature an abundance of natural lighting. RIMAC houses the offices of the Intercollegiate Athletics, Recreation and Sports Facilities departments. RIMAC also features recreational, educational and meeting spaces which can accommodate a variety of activities.
RIMAC Arena is a multi-use facility capable of accommodating activities ranging from large spectator events including ceremonies and concerts to athletic competitions and tournaments. The 44,000-square-foot floor is also capable of hosting large floor exhibits. The arena floor is spring loaded, employing the use of Robbins Bio-Cushion I and is curtain divisible for multi-sport use in basketball (total of five courts), volleyball and badminton. The arena is furnished with 10 retractable glass basketball backboards as well as floor plates and sleeves for volleyball and badminton.
Employing the use of telescopic bleachers and floor seats, RIMAC Arena can accommodate up to 5,000 spectators.
RIMAC is home to the UCSD men's and women's basketball teams, along with the men's and women's volleyball squads. With enthusiastic support from both the campus and surrounding communities, the Tritons truly enjoy a home court advantage.
