BYU-Idaho Center

Dedicated in December 2010 after approximately three years of construction, the BYU-Idaho Center has become the university's central gathering place. With nearly 435,000 square feet of space, this multi-purpose building is essentially two facilities in one, containing a 15,000-seat auditorium and a large, multi-use activities center. The auditorium is home to weekly devotionals. Read more about the history of the BYU-Idaho Center.
