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