Gyms 1&2 practice Gyms originally built in 1981 as part of the greater athletics/PE complex. This is where UH athletes train daily for Division 1 competition in Basketball and Volleyball. Guest teams also use these facilities to practice before games. On any day, one can visit this facility and hear the whistle blow, as athletes sprint up and down the courts, or participate in technique sharpening drills. The facility is also used for PE classes
