The venerable Romano Gymnasium has housed UMD men's basketball for over a half-century and women's basketball and volleyball for nearly the past four decades. Romano Gymnasium officially opened with a 73-72 UMD men's basketball triumph against Gustavus Adolphus College on December 12, 1953.
The 2,759-seat Romano Gymnasium has certainly been a hospitable home for the UMD volleyball program. The Bulldogs have won an impressive 86.2 percent of its matches in that facility since 1977. The Bulldogs have advanced to the NCAA Division II Tournament 17 times under head coach Jim Boos. In addition, UMD has also turned in eight perfect home records to date (including a 15-0 mark in 2012). The Volleyball Bulldogs packed a record 2,441 fans into Romano Gymnasium on Nov. 1, 2011 to watch UMD do battle with arch NSIC-rival Concordia University-St. Paul, which shattered the previous largest turnout of 2,312 on Oct. 30, 2007 between the same two schools. Romano Gym was the site of the 2014, 2013, 2007 and 2006 NCAA Division II Central Regional Volleyball Tournaments.
