Jenny Craig Pavilion (JCP) is a 5,100 seat, multi-purpose arena, built in 2000 in San Diego, California, on the campus of the University of San Diego. It was named for weight-loss entrepreneur Jenny Craig. The Pavilion is sometimes affectionately known as the "Slim Gym", a punning reference to the weight-loss program founded by its namesake. It is the home of the University of San Diego Toreros men's and women's basketball and volleyball teams.[5] Besides basketball, the Jenny Craig Pavilion is also used for many other campus and community events and concerts.

Interior 2007

From 2001-2003, the arena was the site of the West Coast Conference men's basketball tournament, and hosted the tournament again in 2008.
