Monmouth University Basketball Arena to be Named OceanFirst Bank Center

Monmouth University and OceanFirst Bank on Tuesday announced their partnership to name the school’s multipurpose activity center and basketball arena the OceanFirst Bank Center.

The $4 million agreement, which continues through 2036, includes official naming rights and other partnership benefits. The OceanFirst Bank brand will be displayed in prominent locations inside and outside the facility.

The relationship augments the funding by the OceanFirst Foundation, which since its inception has awarded grants of more than $616,000 to Monmouth, including scholarships to 140 students over the past seven years, a program the organization expects to continue.

The facility opened in 2009. It is home to the Hawks’ NCAA Division I programs and houses a 4,100-seat competition arena; a 200-meter, six-lane track; locker rooms, educational and conference space, the Leon Hess Champions Hall, a fitness center and the University Store.

Its varied use attracts more than 120,000 unique visitors annually for men’s and women’s basketball games, concerts and shows, high school commencements and high school athletic tournaments and sports camps and clinics.
