Venue Information

The Dunkin' Donuts Center is an indoor arena located in Providence, Rhode Island, USA. Built in 1972, the arena was built as a place for the emerging Providence College men's basketball program and the high demand for tickets to their games in Alumni Hall, as well as for the then-Providence Reds, who played in the nearly fifty-year old Rhode Island Auditorium. The arena was known as the Providence Civic Center until a naming rights deal was reached with Dunkin' Donuts in June 2001. Current tenants include the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League and the Providence College Friars men's basketball team.

In December of 2005, the Rhode Island Convention Center Authority purchased the building from the City of Providence for $28.5 million. A major reconstruction is currently underway. The Authority will spend $62 million on the renovation of the "Dunk" to transform the facility into a state-of-the-art arena. Two major elements of the construction include an expanded lobby and an enclosed pedestrian bridge between the Convention Center and the Dunkin' Donuts Center.
