Rupp Arena Upper Level

Features & Amenities

On the Rupp Arena seating chart, 200-Level seats are also known as Upper Level sections. For concerts and basketball games, this is usually the best place to find cheap tickets.

Upper Level Side Sections

Most Upper Level sections can be classified into either Side or End. Between these two, side sections are (e.g.: 211-217) are the more desirable location.

When choosing seats along the side, pay close attention to the row you're sitting in. There are 25 rows in each section with an entrance at the front. Paying a few extra dollars to sit in a lower row will make it easier to get to and from the concourse and result in better sitelines.

Side sections include 211-217 and 228-234. Rows go from A-Z in these sections and all seats are chairback-style.

End Sections

True budget seats can be found on the ends. These are bench-style seats for fans who just want to get in the building.

  • End sections 238-241 are reserved for UK students during basketball games
  • Sections 235-244 are behind the stage for most concerts

Note: These seats are highlighted on the map
