The Recreation, IntraMural, Athletic Complex (RIMAC) is the cornerstone of the UCSD 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 the campus. Opened in January 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 a variety of recreational, educational, and meeting spaces which can accommodate a variety of activities.
The RIMAC Arena is a multi-use facility capable of accommodating a wide variety of 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 accommodating 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, and floor plates and sleeves for volleyball and badminton. Employing the use of telescopic bleachers and floor seats, the RIMAC Arena may accommodate up to 5,000 people.
RIMAC is home to the UCSD men and women’s basketball teams along with the men and women’s volleyball squads. Over 50 home athletic events are contested in RIMAC every year, and with enthusiastic support from both the campus and surrounding communities, the Tritons truly enjoy a home court advantage. Both of the basketball and volleyball teams utilize the main court for both practice and games, while the auxiliary courts, which are located on the third floor, are used only for practices.
