I personally don't care for basketball, and only attended the tournament to support a home player in her last games. The hall was tremendously laid out the way they should all be for this sport. Beautiful big screen monitor high above center court, that all...More

Attended the IU vs Purdue WNIT game at Assembly. Great game and very reasonable prices. The admission cost was $6 per ticket and free parking allowed for very enjoyable evening at a modest price. Plus the basketball game was terrific.

We really enjoy the atmosphere of watching Hoosier basketball at Assembly Hall! They did such a great job with the renovations, keeping the nostalgia of the original hall but making it more up to date. The glass atrium is beautiful inside and out, particularly when...More

We went to many IUB women's home B-Ball games. Family friendly atmosphere - fun healthy outing. The ticket staff are friendly and attentive. We go with my 92 year-old mother-in-law. From the minute we step inside staff is very kind and attentive.

Enjoyed the IU/PU game and it was the first time I'd been there since the remodel was complete. Really liked the look. The energy of the crowd was still just like before. Great day.

Clean. Parking limited due to construction of football stadium. Friendly courteous service crew. Great viewing. Loud. Great atmosphere for college basketball. Team learning under new coach. Will rise to level after some struggles. Always enjoy my trips to the Hall.

you can buy a pass and get a parking spot somewhere around Assembly Hall. Or you can simply park within a few blocks and not pay anything. Another option I have done is to Simply take an Uber to the game.
