The McDermott Center is a 2,000-seat multi-purpose arena in San Antonio, Texas on the campus of the University of the Incarnate Word.
The Alice P. McDermott Convocation Center opened on the UIW campus in the fall of 1989. Since that time, the Cardinals have played in the building named for the late Alice McDermott, a longtime supporter of education in San Antonio and South Texas.
A focal point for the University's athletic complex, the building seats 2,000 spectators for basketball and volleyball, including four rows of theater-style chair seats. There is office space for the men's and women's basketball coaches as well as office space for their entire staffs.
On the west end of the Center, there are four locker rooms, a training room, and a fully-equipped weight training room.
The main entrance to the facility includes a permanent concession stand surrounded by trophy cases to house the multiple awards accrued by the Cardinals over the years.
Upstairs, the Gorman-Mitchell Room houses a number of members of the UIW Athletics staff. With its own kitchen facilities, this room has a balcony which overlooks the campus to the east, just across the headwaters of the San Antonio River.
