UC Santa Barbara Events Center, originally known as Campus Events Center and now most commonly known as The Thunderdome, is a 5,600-seat, indoor multi-purpose stadium on the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara in Santa Barbara, California. The Thunderdome was built in 1979, originally under the name of Campus Events Center. Along with Harder Stadium, it has since become one of the most patronized venues at UC Santa Barbara. After a naming contest and vote among students and faculty (which included some tongue in cheek nominations such as "Yankee Stadium", the Jerry Brown Arena, the Corrugated Fortress), it was eventually given the generic name "Campus Events Center". Eventually, the name was unofficially shorted to the "ECen" (much like UCSB's University Center being called the "UCen").

For basketball, the stadium seats 5,600.[1] Other configurations result in differing capacities, most notably 5,814 as a maximum (for boxing or wrestling)[2] or 3,584 to 4,848 for concerts.[3][4] Currently, the 5,600 seat stadium is the third largest arena in the Big West Conference, behind the 8,000-seat UC Davis Pavilion and the University of the Pacific's 6,150-seat Alex G. Spanos Center.

A long-awaited indoor sports arena for the University of Southern California finally began construction on October 31, 2004 under the direction of HNTB Architecture. Designed by the firm's Fernando Vasquez, the mega arena compliments the other brick-clad buildings on the main campus; its massive brick pillars reminiscent of Edward D. Stone's design for the Waite Phillips Hall of Education. Huge bas-relief sculptures of athletes, cap-and-gown graduates and dancers adorn the corners. The interior houses the main arena, a practice facility and administrative offices. A huge picture window on the arena's north side dramatically frames a view of the downtown Los Angeles skyline.

The USC basketball program waited for over 100 years for the realization of their own arena. Gifts totalling $50 million from long-time Trojan booster Louis Galen and his wife Helen made the center possible. The Center cost an estimated $147 million to complete, including the arena, team offices and a practice facility. Teams began competing in the arena in October 2006.
