“Needs to be demolished”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Despite being one of the loudest most recognized basketball arenas in the country, its time has passed. The seats are uncomfortable. The balcony seating is a joke -- way too far away. The steps up and down the steep aisles are non-standard and could easily cause a fall. Great memories, but time to build a new home for the Hoosiers.

“Still a great place”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We are long time alumni who try to catch a game every year. Building has had technical updates, but some seats still view the corner wall (not changed from 30+ years ago!). Nevertheless, we keep coming back and always have a great time!

“A trip down memory lane.”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Strange name for a field house but my husband is an alumnus of IU and follows IU basketball. He frequented Assembly Hall during his years as a student at IU. It meant a lot to be there again.
