Arena Spaces

The Cintas Center arena can be set in a variety of configurations tailored to meet the needs of a wide range of events including sports, graduations, concerts, religious services, trade shows, corporate meetings and banquets. Arena seating can be extended for a full capacity of 10,250 or retracted to accommodate groups of various sizes. With the house curtain forward of the scoreboard and the addition of first-class lighting effects designed and controlled by the Cintas Center's audiovisual professionals, the arena can be transformed into an intimate theater setting.

Auxiliary spaces

The Kohlhepp Family Auxiliary Gym is designed for athletics games and practices, but has myriad other uses. The gym functions as a staging area for graduations and other arena events, and, with easy access to the arena's main floor and dressing rooms, can be used as a dining area for traveling road crews. Breakout sessions and other meetings are also possible in the auxiliary gym.
