Longwood University Joan Perry Brock Center


The new 3,000 seat Joan Perry Brock Center is opening in the summer of 2023. The arena will be home to Longwood men’s and women’s basketball programs as well as host university events, concerts, and other activities.  Brock’s $15 million gift is the largest in history for Longwood University and ushers both Longwood basketball programs into the next phase of their Division I growth while also spearheading the construction of a venue with immeasurable potential for the university and the Farmville community. In the fall of 2022 Longwood selected CENTERS to manage the state-of-the-art venue.
