Connolly Center is a 999-seat multi-purpose arena in Seattle, Washington. It was built in 1959 and is home to the Seattle University Redhawks women's basketball and volleyball teams, as well as the home court for the Redhawks men's team, which also plays at nearby KeyArena since 2009 when the school returned to NCAA Division I.

On December 15, 2014, the men's team returned for the first time since 2008, for a single game against Northwest University, which Seattle won. Connolly Center was also used for College Basketball Invitational games in mid-March in 2015 and 2016.

The arena underwent a major remodel for the 2014-15 season, with new seating, court, and more.

Starting in 2016, the men's team will play six regular season games at the Connolly Center, with possible plans for even more home games in the future here. The school cites the change to getting more student involvement, a more intimate home setting, the success of hosting CBI games here the last two years, and the lack of attendance at KeyArena.
