Health and Physical Education Arena (H&PE Arena) is an 8,100-seat multi-purpose arena in Houston, Texas.

H&PE Arena

It was built in 1989 and is home to the Texas Southern University Tigers basketball and volleyball teams.[1][2] The arena will also play host to most Houston Cougars men's basketball games during the 2017–18 season, as well as all Houston Cougars women's basketball home games in the same season,[3] due to renovations of their arena. Originally, the plan was to play most of the Cougars' men's conference games as well as a non-conference game against Arkansas at Toyota Center, with the remainder of the games at TSU.[4] However, all of the games were eventually scheduled for H&PE Arena.[5] H&PE Arena had previously hosted Houston's first-round game against Akron in the 2017 National Invitation Tournament due to the renovations at UH.[6][7]
