Crawford Hall is a volleyball arena for UC Irvine. Crawford Hall Gym is where the men's and women's volleyball matches are held and is one of the top 25 largest volleyball-only facilities in the nation. The gym seats 1,400 and also houses the UC Irvine intercollegiate athletics offices. The Crawford Hall Complex, in addition to housing the athletic administration offices, also includes sports medicine, strength and conditioning, and student-athlete academic support services. The facility's outdoor breezeway is also informally recognized within the UC Irvine community as the rehearsal space for hip hop dance team Kaba Modern.

Crawford Hall is one of nine original buildings designed by William Pereira that were present when the campus opened in 1965. Cased in cylindrical concrete panels and perched atop a small hill, it has a castle-like presence when viewed from the road. It is attached to a smaller administrative building by an arched, covered walkway which spans a landscaped courtyard between the two. Originally named Campus Hall, it served as a multi-purpose facility prior to construction of the first Student Center in the 1980s.
