Parking is available to guests with disabilities with the appropriate hangtag or license plate on a first-come, first-served basis (click here for more parking information). Cintas is also accessible by Metro bus routes 4 and 51. Routes 43, 45 and 47 are also nearby.

What food and drinks will be available on game days?

Where can I find baby changing and nursing areas?
Baby changing stations are available inside all restrooms at the Cintas Center. A dedicated Mamava lactation space is located outside the west doors of the James and Caroline Duff Banquet Center past the staircase and adjacent to the west elevator.
Where can I buy CRG merch?
Stop by our merch booth on game days (exact location TBD) for T-shirts, hats, seat cushions, drink coozies, buttons, stickers, cowbells, stickers, buttons and more. Prices range from $1 to about $25, and we accept cash and credit cards. The Cintas Center has two ATM machines: One just inside the main entrance next to the event ticketing office and another just inside the east entrance on the fourth level of the arena. You can also buy official CRG merchandise through our online shop.
Why don’t you have more home games?
Historically, our home game schedules have been determined by the availability of the venues that we rent, our away game schedule and the resources of our all-volunteer organization. Cintas has a full schedule with Xavier basketball and volleyball games, high school graduations, sports camps and a variety of other special events. We are grateful for the opportunity to take advantage of four open dates on Cintas’s 2020 calendar, and we hope to bring you more games in the future.
We look forward to seeing you at our inaugural season at Cintas!
