The Mountaineer basketball games are played at the Coliseum which seats around 14,000. The newly renovated Creative Arts Center, seating 1,600, offers both musical and dramatic events, along with galleries exhibiting student work and work from up-and-coming artists. The Core Arboretum has 7 hiking trails with several hundred species of native plants, and is occasionally the site of planned activities. The Shell Indoor Recreation Center and Natatorium are located near the Coliseum. WVU offers a Student Recreation Center as well.
