Opened in 1988, the UPMC Cooper Fieldhouse is the 4,400-seat sports and events facility of Duquesne University. The center originally resulted from a gift by mining entrepreneur Antonio J. Palumbo (1906-2002).

Duquesne University is a private, Catholic university established in 1878. It is named in honor of Michel-Ange Duquesne de Menneville (1700-1778), who was the governor general of France’s colonies in North America. He built the first fort at the point where the Ohio River forms and where Pittsburgh began.

The contemporary, cinderblock Palumbo is home to the university’s basketball, volleyball and wrestling programs as well as its athletic department.

After an extensive renovation, it was named after partnering organization University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) and in honor of Duquesne alumnus and professional basketball player Charles “Chuck” Cooper (1926-1984).
