  • Been to several events here ranging from concerts to basketball games. It's always wonderful. Clean and well kept. Always updating. Security is very good here. Is an all around great venue. For being a college arena it rivals that of those on NBA level
  • I wish the greatest tradition in college basketball had a better home to play in. Having been in many other arenas I feel that Rupp is actually probably a 1 star but I just can't bring myself to rate UK's home less than 2 and it is hard even doing a 2. Seriously upgrade the freaking arena already. There is no reason in the 21st century that you have to deal with people's knees in your back and feet in your rear every single time you sit down. Bad high school gyms are more comfortable.
  • The new scoreboard is great, and there's never a bad time to come watch the Cats!
  • Love watching a game here, but if we're honest with each other, Rupp could use an overhaul. Upper level seating (bleachers) are terrible, so much so that is rather watch a game at home. Concerts aren't great because of acoustics, which is probably why we don't get many big acts coming through. We need better food and alcohol! Let's get this place updated and GO CATS!
  • Very well maintained facility with interesting shopping options and lots of room for large events/conventions
