    The Gallagher Center is a 2,400-seat multi-purpose arena at Niagara University's campus in Lewiston, New York. The structure was initially built in 1949 and substantially renovated in 1999. It is the home court of the Niagara Purple Eagles men's basketball and women's basketball and volleyball teams.

    Originally known as the Niagara University Student Center, it was renamed in honor of John J. "Taps" Gallagher (1905-1982) on May 23, 1982. Coach Gallagher guided the Purple Eagles men's team for 31 seasons (1931-1943 and 1946-1965), leading the team to 25 winning seasons, including 11 Little Three championships and seven appearances in the National Invitation Tournament when the NIT was the premiere postseason tournament. At the time of his retirement, he was the 12th winningest coach in college basketball history.
