Chase Gymnasium


As the premiere event venue on the Biola University campus, Chase Gymnasium is extremely versatile. The room is a blank canvas, ripe for customization to build the perfect event. It can be used in its “gym” state for activities such as basketball or dodgeball, or the floor can be covered to make it an “event” venue with the addition of staging, chairs, tables, drape or lighting to build the perfect setup. With the ability to seat up to 2200 guests depending on how the room is arranged, Chase Gymnasium makes for a great main venue to hold your large event.
