Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall for Hoosiers basketball games is one of the most iconic stadiums in college basketball. Seating runs along both sidelines and is steep to the court, which creates a great gameday environment.
Due to the steep nature of the stands, we recommend that fans who have difficulty with steps choose seats near the entry tunnels.
Numbered sections 1, 2, 10 and lettered sections L, M, AA, BB, GG, HH, JJ, KK, LL, MM are entirely student seating sections.
Rows 9 and above in sections CC-FF will be filled with IU students.
The back rows of sections G-K are designated for student seating.
The Balcony Level Sideline seats are the highest seating section at Assembly Hall. However, the view is actually pretty good, despite being so high up. To get to these sections, fans will need to take the escalator up to the main level and then walk up four flights of stairs to get to the balcony level. If walking stairs is difficult for you, it is recommended to look for seats in the lower sections.
The entrance tunnel comes in at row, the middle row of each section. All of the seats in the Balcony Level have chairbacks, so there will be back support in each seat. All of the sections are a part of the student seating, except for rows 1-8 in sections CC, DD, EE, and FF.
The Floor Baseline sections at Assembly Hall offer a unique experience for a basketball game. These sections are behind the baskets and depending on which row you are in, it could be difficult to watch the game.
Each section consists of 19 rows, and the higher you sit, the more your view could become obstructed by the basket. We recommend sitting in rows 5-10, as to give you the most optimal view of the court.
Sections 1, 2, and 10 make up the student section, with the band sitting in section 1. If you are looking for a rowdy atmosphere, look for seating in these sections.
Much like the Floor Sideline seats, the Floor Baseline seats are bleacher-style seating, so there will not be any back support. The Floor Baseline seats are much more affordable than the Floor Sideline seats, so, if you are looking to get close to the action and don't want to spend too much, these sections could be a good option.
The Floor Sideline seats at Assembly Hall are some of the best seats you can find for and Indiana basketball game. With no more than 5 rows in each section you will practically feel like you are on the court with the players. With so few rows of seating there are not many seats available, which makes these sections some of the priciest options at Assembly Hall.
Not only do these seats offer great center court views, but you can be really close to the players. Section 4 is right behind the Indiana bench, with section 3 being right behind the visiting team's bench.
Another thing to keep in mind is that these are bleacher-style seating, meaning there will be no back support. If having back support is important to you, look for seats in one of the upper level sections.
At Assembly Hall, some of the best seats in the house are going to be found in the Main Level Sideline sections. The sections are the biggest in the arena, consisting of 46 rows of seating each. Also, every seat in the Main Level Sideline sections is going to have chairback seating that offers back support and comfort to take in a basketball game.
Fans will need to take the escalator or ascending walkway to get to these sections, and the tunnel entrance to each section will be found in row 26. For the best views we recommend sitting in sections C, D, J, or K to give you that center court view.
