The campaign to renovate University of Cincinnati’s Fifth Third Arena
Top players expect top facilities and the new Fifth Third Arena will be one of the best on-campus venues in the nation. Four- and five-star recruits will want to don the red and black - fans at full voice, students roaring behind each basket. The message will be clear:
This is where championships are earned.
- Head Coach Mick Cronin
Bearcats fans are more than mere spectators, they bring an energy and voice opponents rightly fear. This is their house, too, and they deserve the very best. The new Fifth Third Arena will be unlike any other facility of its kind in the country. UC will rightly take its place as class of the league.
Unlike any other.
“Our fans are the lifeblood of our program. They’re not just spectators – they’re participants! Fans have been critical to our success, and this new arena rewards them for their Bearcats pride.”
– Director of Athletics Mike Bohn
Our House. Reimagined. Rebuilt. Reinvented. The new Fifth Third Arena redefines what it means to play for and watch the Bearcats. It will be wide open and welcoming. A place for students to learn and play, a place for the larger community to come together for celebration and shared experience. Join us!
Our House. Reimagined.
“At the heart of UC’s plan for our third century is re-imagining the student experience. This renovation, by creating space for all of our students, shows they remain the focus of everything we do.”
– Interim President Beverly Davenport
