Old Dominion University Fieldhouse was a 5,200 seat multi-purpose arena in Norfolk, Virginia. It opened in 1970. It was home to the Old Dominion University Monarchs and Lady Monarchs basketball teams until the 2002-03 basketball season, when the Ted Constant Convocation Center opened.
The men's team played the majority of its home games in the arena from 1970 to 1977, before moving full-time to the Norfolk Scope from 1977 to 1990, returning to the Fieldhouse on a part-time basis in 1990, and playing the majority of its season on-campus during the 2001-02 season, the last before moving into the Constant Center. The venue played host to the American Basketball Association's Virginia Squires for some games in the 1970-71 season.  It was the site of the final game of the ECAC Southern Region Tournament, a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I men's college basketball tournament organized by the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC), in 1977; the tournament champion received an automatic bid to the 1977 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.
The Fieldhouse was demolished in 2006. The ODU Recreation and Wellness Center now stands on its footprint. The center contains a 15,000 sq. ft. multi-level fitness center, multiple gymnasiums and racquetball courts, an indoor track, pool, indoor climbing wall and facilities for equipment rentals.
