The $54 million multi-function Ryan Center at the University of Rhode Island is an impressive
building and ideal location for events and meetings. Counting nearly 8,000 seats, including
more than 1,000 club seats and seven luxury suites, the arena is comfortable and classy
without being cavernous or claustrophobic. The facility offers three meeting or event
spaces, with onsite catering. The Ryan Center’s flexibility allows it to host a variety of
athletic events, including basketball, cheerleading and gymnastics.
