Built in 1955, the Hornets Nest is one of the oldest facilities among all NCAA Division I member universities. With a seating capacity of 1,012, the intimate setting results in a great opportunity for the fans to be close to the action from every seat in the gym. It also provides the Hornets one of the best home-court advantages in the NCAA. The Hornets Nest is located at the far end of Lot 1 on the northern half of the Sacramento State campus.
