Security Measures

Following the best practices recommended by the Department of Homeland Security and National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security as well as state law, additional security measures will be in place for all men’s basketball games in Allen Fieldhouse. These measures aim to provide a safer environment for all in attendance and improve the guest experience by expediting screening and entry into the fieldhouse.

All persons – game day staff, ticketed guests – are subject to screening before entering Allen Fieldhouse. Walk-through metal detectors will be the primary means of screening. For guests who are unable to utilize a walk-through metal detector, hand-held metal detectors will be used with physical pat-downs as a final alternative option. Any person who does not consent to screening will be denied entry into the fieldhouse. For more information on what is and is not allowed in Allen Fieldhouse, please review the Clear Bag policy and the Prohibited Items listed above.

Guests with tickets in hand are strongly encouraged to use the screening area and entry gate closest to their parking area or pre-game event location. In many cases, this will expedite entry. To help ensure that guests are in their seats by game time, all guests are encouraged to make their way to the entry points at least one (1) hour prior to game time. Fans who leave at half-time must be re-screened prior to re-entry.

  • Medical Entrance (wheelchairs and other assistive devices): Gate 11 – South end
  • Credentialed Entrance (Media and others with approved game day credentials): Gate 12 – South end

Screening Accommodations
All guests and personal items (including assistive devices) are subject to screening and search before entering Allen Fieldhouse. Guests with disabilities who are willing to utilize walk-through metal detectors are encouraged to do so; however, these lanes are not accessible for wheelchairs and other assistive devices. The designated Medical entrance (Gate 11 – South end) is accessible for all guests with disabilities. Guests with medical devices should consult their doctor or device manufacturer if unsure of their ability to use a walkthrough metal detector. Guests should notify Event Staff that they have a medical device and will be assisted through the screening process.
