University of South Carolina – Colonial Life Arena

Situated in the heart of downtown Columbia’s Entertainment District, the Colonial Life Arena, South Carolina’s largest event venue, is a first-class facility that is home to the University of South Carolina basketball, graduation ceremonies, concerts, and shows. Working in concert with architectural firm, Rosser International, Stevens & Wilkinson’s Engineering Team developed a compact design that would accommodate more than 18,000 spectators. Featuring 41 Corporate suites on the main concourse level and a column-free space for non-obstructive viewing, the Colonial Life Arena is part of an overall multi-block urban revitalization campaign, designed to enhance the appearance of the Columbia region’s Historic Southeastern Vista District.
