Answer: Patrons will generally receive the same seat
locations from the previous year. Patrons will be contacted in
any cases where seating may change drastically.
4. Can I purchase additional tickets next to my current
Answer: Generally, no. Season tickets are allocated with
priority for season ticket patrons. Additional individual event
tickets are seated after season ticket allocation, and adjacent
seats may not be available. After season allocations are completed
and individual events are requested, if adjacent seats are available,
they will be assigned. For additional season tickets ordered,
seats will only be assigned based on priority and availability
within the priority area.
5. Where will my seats be assigned?
Answer: Athletic Event Seat Assignments:
(For Football and Basketball seating, please refer to stadium
maps.) Renewal season ticket orders are allocated first, based
on priority levels and donor status. Additional individual games
ordered by season ticket holders are assigned next. After that,
new season orders are allocated. Then, individually ordered games
are assigned based on time of order (chronologically). For Football,
individual games are generally assigned in section 3, 13, and
16. However, seating may improve based on availability during
the particular season. Individual games for Volleyball, Baseball,
and Women's Basketball are available at the events. For other
Olympic sports, which may have paid admission, tickets are available
at the events.
Answer: Campus and Arts Events Seating:
The best available seating is assigned at the time of order.
If seats for a particular event cannot be assigned over the phone
at the time of order, allocation will be prioritized based on the
time an order is received. For some events certain sections are
reserved for donors or invited patrons. All other seating is prioritized
based on the time orders are received. Seating for non-reserved
seating events is on a first come, first served basis.
6. Is disabled seating available?
Answer: Yes. Wheelchair seating is available for disabled
patrons and an attendant. Other special seating requests should
be made when ordering. Based on available seats, every effort
will be made to accommodate these requests.
