Fant–Ewing Coliseum is a 7,085-seat multi-purpose arena in Monroe, Louisiana, United States, on the campus of the University of Louisiana at Monroe. It was built in 1971 and is home to the Louisiana–Monroe Warhawks basketball teams. It has hosted the Southland Conference men's basketball tournament five times and the Atlantic Sun Conference men's basketball tournament three times.

During the 2006-07 season, a student only section was created. Deemed the "Hawk's Nest", this section energized Fant-Ewing and the players.

The first game played in Fant-Ewing was on December 1, 1971 against Sam Houston State, who defeated ULM 71-70.
