Cotterell Court is a 1,750-seat multi-purpose arena in Hamilton, New York. It was built in 1959 and is home to the Colgate University Raiders basketball and volleyball teams. It is named for Wesley M. Cotterell '19, a two-time letterwinner in basketball and school trustee. The basketball arena was built as the northern half of the William A. Reid Athletic Center, a twin barrel-vaulted complex which also houses Starr Rink. The complex is located on the western side of campus next to Andy Kerr Stadium and across Broad Street from Huntington Gymnasium, the school's former athletics facility. It was renovated in 2000-2001. The gym has bleacher seating on three sides, with the main sides being the east and west sides and a much shorter section on the north side. The main entrance to the arena is on the south side, leading into the rest of the athletic center.

It hosted the 1996 and 2019 Patriot League men's basketball tournament finals. On November 4, 1977 the Grateful Dead played here as the homecoming weekend headliners. Similarly, The Doors and Bob Marley have played here, as well as Phish, who headlined Spring Party Weekend on April 23, 1993.
