Cameron Indoor Stadium is an indoor arena located on the campus of Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.
The 9,314-seat facility is the primary indoor athletic venue for the Duke Blue Devils and serves as the home court for Duke men's and women's basketball and women's volleyball.
It opened 78 years ago in January 1940 and was known as Duke Indoor Stadium until 1972, when it was named for Eddie Cameron, who served at Duke as men's basketball coach from 1928 to 1942, football coach from 1942 to 1945, and athletic director from 1951 to 1972.
The arena is located adjacent to its predecessor, Card Gymnasium, which opened in 1930.
Originally called "Duke Indoor Stadium", it was renamed for Cameron on January 22, 1972.
The building originally included seating for 8,800, though standing room was sufficient to ensure that 9,500 could fit in on a particularly busy day.
Then, as now, Duke students were allocated a large number of the seats, including those in the lower sections directly alongside the court.
Renovations in 1987–1988 removed the standing room areas, added an electronic scoreboard and display over center court, wood paneling, brass railings and student seats, bringing capacity to 9,314, though now there is sufficient standing to ensure a total of 10,000 could fit into Cameron Indoor on a very busy day.
For high profile games, students are known to pack in as many as 1,600 into the student sections, designed for a maximum of 1,100.
Prior to the 2002–2003 basketball season, air conditioning units were installed in Cameron for the first time as a response to health and odor concerns for players and fans alike.
