Services for Disabled Patrons at LJVM Coliseum

Acquired by Wake Forest in August of 2013, the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum has served as the home for Wake Forest basketball for over 20 years. The arena seats 14,665 fans for basketball and nearly 10,000 for concerts. LJVM Coliseum has hosted four NCAA Tournament events (1993, 1997, 2000, 2007) and serves as home to the Lady Deacons Women's Basketball program.
