Campers will utilize the south gymnasium in Packer Hall, which serves as the home court for the Lions men's and women's basketball and wrestling programs. Located in the heart of campus adjacent to Lions Stadium, Packer Hall also houses all of TCNJ's athletic locker rooms. Following the 2017-18 season, Packer Hall was selected as a host site for the first and second rounds of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament. Renovated prior to the start of the 2017-18 seasons, the south gym upgrades included brand new bleachers that feature a 1,000 spectator seating area, an updated court design, and a back lit scorers table.
