Very nice sports facility. We are here a minimum 4 times a year for OSU basketball games #GoBucks !! As with most sports venues, the seating gets cozier the higher up in the arena you get. But even the "nose-bleed seats" are a decent view of the court. There are food vendors on every level, but not every vendor has... More

My family and I went to the Ohio State vs. Illinois basketball on January 3rd,2015. It was a great game and we had so much fun at Jerome Schottenstein Center. The staff was excellent!

The Schott is a great locale for sports, concerts, monster trucks, graduations, and other events. We enjoyed the circus here today. We were in the second row and were right in all the action. We love the quick entry and exit from the parking lots and (usually) free parking. It's in a great location near campus.

Have been to programs and games, nice set-up, well-designed and executed. Public spaces and food have been good on prior visits. Saw Wisconsin dismantle OSU , great sight lines.

This is a really nice mid size arena (10,000 +/-) there is plenty of parking and it is accessible to the highway (315). OSU plays all of its home basketball games here, but they also have a lot of other events and concerts here. It is always kept up and family friendly.

This is always a great venue for basketball. Spent all day Thursday, Friday and Saturday here. Tali-gated in the parking lot and enjoy girls basketball at other times. The Schott always has good food and reasonably priced for high school state tourney.

Very nice arena. Better than most I have seen for NHL and NBA. Snack prices are pretty low. Parking was free for the Ohio State hockey game. I don't know about other types of events.

Hreat facility to watch Buckeye Hockey. The staff is always really friendly. Snacks are tasty and they run fun promotions. One tip: they only allow beer to be purchased and consumed on the second level. They consider ice level to be a family area. The upsode is that the second level os not as crowded and most of the time... More
