The Leavey Center
The Leavey Center is named after the late founder of Farmers Insurance, Thomas E. Leavey '22, who has a long history with the University that dates back to his days as an undergraduate student. In addition to the men's basketball program, it is the home of the Broncos women's basketball and women's volleyball teams.
The facility for the Leavey School of Business opened in Fall 2008. The 85,000-square-foot building houses classrooms, meeting rooms, offices, study space, and a cafe to serve the undergraduate and graduate business programs.
