The John Paul Jones Arena, to be opened for the 2006-2007 basketball season, is located at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. When opened, it will have seating for 15,000 fans; a dramatic change from the University of Virginia's previous facility, University Hall. The design features columns on the outside to tie in the design with Scott Stadium, UVa's football facility. UVa refers to this style as "Jeffersonian" reminiscent of the many buildings designed by Thomas Jefferson on UVa's campus and nearby.
The arena will play host to not only basketball games, but other events as well such as concerts. In addition to this, the arena will have office space for the UVa athletic department, twin practice facilities for both basketball teams and an extensive sports medicine facility.
