The 38,000-square-foot multipurpose Bill George Arena opened in the fall of 2010 and is the home of JBU's volleyball and men's and women's basketball teams. The arena has a seating capacity of 1,800, which includes student and visitor seating sections and a chair backed section located behind home and visiting team benches. Bill George is also equipped with video monitors and projectors and an arena-wide sound system throughout the building, which allows fans to stay connected to the action when heading to the concession area or if looking to purchase JBU paraphernalia in the team store - both located in the Soderquist Family Lobby. The arena also houses three state of the art locker rooms for the volleyball and basketball teams. And it also includes a new coaching suite for the basketball and volleyball coaches. The arena is also the home of the Mary K. Chapman Hospitality Suite, which is located on the upper level overlooking the court.
John Brown University's Alumni Field is home to the JBU men's and women's soccer teams. Alumni Field is approximately 120x72 yards and is located on the north end of the JBU campus. The field, which is arguably one of the best pitches to compete on in the Sooner Athletic Conference, also includes bleacher seating with a capacity to hold 500 fans. In addition to the main field, a practice field is located to the east.

Murray Sells Gymnasium was built in 1965 and served as the home gymnasium for all basketball
and volleyball contests for nearly 45 years. The 2009-10 season was the final season of competition played in Sells due to the
construction of Bill George Arena. The gymnasium has been renovated since that time and is currently used as a practice facility.
