Parking is generally free in the Park St. lots between the Volleyball Competition Facility and Colonial Life Arena, except on Arena event days.
The Gamecock volleyball program moved into a new facility in January 1996. Completed at a cost of $4.6 million, the Volleyball Competition Facility also serves as a practice venue for both the men's and women's basketball programs.
In addition to the 1,600-seat gymnasium, the facility includes offices for the volleyball and basketball staffs. The volleyball team's athletic training and weight rooms are located in the Carolina Coliseum, which is adjacent to the Volleyball Competition Facility and connected via an underground tunnel. The Gamecocks' locker rooms reside in the Coliseum, as do those for opponents as well.
The largest crowd to witness a match at the facility is the 1,793 who saw the Gamecocks drop a heartbreaking 3-2 decision to Florida on Sept. 21, 2001. South Carolina eclipsed the attendance figure a few years later when 1,965 patrons were on hand for the 2004 Clemson match, but it was played in the Colonial Life Arena.
