The Carver–Hawkeye Arena is a multi-purpose indoor arena located in Iowa City, Iowa. Opened in 1983, it is the home court for The University of Iowa Hawkeyes men's and women's basketball teams, as well as the university's wrestling, and gymnastics teams. It was named for the late industrialist Roy J. Carver of Muscatine, Iowa, a prominent statewide booster, who donated $9.2 million to The University of Iowa before his death in 1981. Prior to the arena's opening, Iowa's athletic teams played at the Iowa Field House.

  • The stadium is a pretty cool place to see a basketball game. You walk down from the top to your seats. The site lines are good. Nice place.

  • We love attending wrestling duals in Carver Hawkeye Arena. While I would love to have seats closer to the floor, visibility doesn't tend to be an issue. The jumbo screen also helps with visibility when the crowd gets excited, people standing to their feet and block your view. Parking near the arena is not bad. Just be prepared to walk a reasonable distance and then wait to get out when the event is over. Carver Hawkeye is a great place to enjoy sporting events with your family. Go Hawks!
  • Attended a graduation. Was not allowed to bring in water bottles even though the outside temps were 90 degrees and no air conditioning inside. Otherwise it seemed like a good place for events with pretty good AV system and acoustics.
