The G. Rollie White Coliseum is an on-campus arena at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, in the United States. Often referred to as the "Jollie Rollie" or "The Holler House on the Brazos," the arena was the home of Texas A&M's Aggie volleyball team, which played there since its inception in 1975 until 2009. Prior to the building of Reed Arena in 1998, it was also the home to the men's and women's basketball teams.
The building was built in 1954, and is located directly to the north of Kyle Field. The "U"-shaped building seats 7,800 in the main grandstand on three sides, with a small auxiliary bleacher section on the flat end of the building. The exterior is sandstone, and was originally visible outside the northern corner of the field (although it now mostly obscured by the expansion of the northwest stands).
The renovation of the Memorial Student Center (MSC) required the relocation of the campus bookstore, which occupied the arena floor at G. Rollie from the summer of 2009 until April 2012 when the MSC reopened. It has hosted the NCAA volleyball tournament ten times.
