One of the best features of the Hughes Metropolitan Complex is the location — and being just a mile north of the main Wichita State University Campus is only a small part of that. Close proximity and quick access to K-96, I-35 and I-135 makes getting to and from the venue a pain-free experience.

One of the most popular feature of the Hughes Metropolitan Complex is the parking. It’s right next to the building — and it’s free. There are 1,100 parking spaces. No steps. No elevators. It doesn’t get much easier. As part of the WSU system, the Metroplex is a first-class venue.
