COURTSIDE SEATING
In 2017-18, Belmont University Athletics added courtside seating for home men's and women's basketball games. There are no seats any closer to the game action for any sport at Belmont than the row of courtside seating directly across from the player benches. Due to the high demand for this location, courtside seats can be purchased on a season ticket basis only— no individual game sales are available. Additionally, total seats purchased must equate to an even number. If you are interested, contact Russell Grimm, Director of Athletic Fundraising at 615-460-5668 today!

DIRECTIONS
The Curb Event Center is easily accessible within the Belmont University campus footprint.

RECYCLING
At Belmont University, we believe taking care of God’s creation is more than a cause. It’s a charge. Which is why we serve as an arboretum to preserve more than 100 species of trees and shrubs, and carefully manage water usage for irrigation. It's why we build and maintain green roofs and construct new buildings to LEED-certified standards. And why we utilize geothermal energy and other innovative systems to heat and cool parts of campus. We think of it as a covenant – the Conservation Covenant – to take good care of that which takes such good care of us. FAQ on Bottled Water Policy.
