The Peter W. Stott Center is a 1,500-seat multi-purpose arena located on the Portland State University campus in Portland, Oregon, in the United States.[1] The facility houses the Portland State Vikings Athletics Department as well as physical education classes. It features locker rooms, racquet courts (tennis, squash and racquetball), eighth-mile track, weight training, wrestling room, small gym, pool and arena. It opened in 1966. It is home to the Portland State Vikings basketball and volleyball teams.

The facility is named after alumnus and booster Peter Stott, whose $1 million challenge grant enabled a renovation of the basketball court.[citation needed]

The building began renovations on April 23, 2016, which will feature a 3,000 seat basketball arena and expanded academic space. The renovated building is set to open in March 2018.[2]
