Facilities & Directions


O'Reilly Family Event CenterO'Reilly Family Event Center

The O'Reilly Family Event Center opened on the Drury University campus on October 1, 2010, as the new home of the Drury men's and women's basketball teams and volleyball squad.

The arena has a capacity of 3,100 for athletic events and was built at a pricetag of $13.5 million. It was funded entirely through private donations, with the generous lead naming rights gift of $6 million provided by the O'Reilly family of Springfield.

In addition to serving as one of the best facilities in the nation for athletics and the potential future home of both Great Lakes Valley Conference and NCAA championship events, it provides Drury University with a crown jewel in the center of its campus and a home for a variety of events involving the student body population, from concerts to graduations to meeting and dining space in the plush new banquet area inside the building. A large concourse area outside will provide students a popular gathering place before and after events as well.  It is also air-conditioned, a welcome addition to the hot summer camp months.



Weiser Gym and Mabee Gym

Just a few feet across a beautiful outdoor plaza from the O’Reilly Center is Weiser and Mabee Gymnasium. Using all three courts gives the coaches flexibility and additional space for camp drills and instruction. Adjacent to the HPER Facility, the new air-conditioned O'Reilly Center allows the entire camp program to be centrally located on campus.
