Cameron Hall, the 5,800 seat multi-purpose facility, is the home of VMI basketball and the VMI athletic department offices. It also plays host to numerous special events throughout the year. Located in the basement level of Cameron Hall are the athletic department library, a reception area which was recently refloored by the VMI Keydet Club, and five racquetball courts which are open to all cadets.
The most recent improvement to Cameron Hall was the installation of a new $ 100,000 wooden floor that will provide an excellent playing surface in the years to come. The floor was imported from Sweden this in 1998 and an attractive color scheme was painted on the surface to reflect the up-tempo pace of “Runnin’ Roos” basketball.
In the summer of 1995, Cameron Hall received its most extensive facelift since its opening in 1981. Virtually every inch of floor and wall space underwent renovation.
The arena interior was entirely repainted with walls, portals, railings , and basket supports sporting fresh paint in a new and exciting color scheme.
The VMI locker rooms and lounge area were completely renovated. New lockers and carpeting were installed, and the lockeroom walls received a fresh coat of paint. The new surroundings provide a comfortable and attractive home for Keydet basketball teams in the future.
In 1999-2000, the VMI Basketball "Wall of Fame" was unveiled on the mezzanine level coridor. The photographic display pays tribute to the VMI basketball players who have been inducted into the VMI Sports Hall of Fame.
With the recent improvements, Cameron Hall provides a beautiful and well maintained facility for Keydet basketball throughout the 90’s and into the next century.
