  • Florida Gymnasium (commonly known as "Florida Gym") is a historic building located on the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. Design work was begun by university architect Rudolph Weaver during World War II and completed by his successor Guy Fulton. It replaced the old University Gymnasium built in 1915, which then became the Women's Gymnasium. Florida Gym opened in 1949 as a 7,000-seat multi-purpose arena that was home to the Florida Gators men's basketball team until it was replaced by the Stephen C. O'Connell Center as the university's indoor sports area in 1980. While serving as the home court of the Gators basketball team, it was also known as "Alligator Alley."
