Policies and Fee Information
Ticket Refund & Exchange Policies
During this pandemic year, UMS will offer completely flexible ticketing policies, including refunds, exchanges for future events (or a gift certificate valid for up to five years), or a donation of the purchase price of the ticket(s) to UMS. Whether a performance is canceled, or you’re simply not feeling well or are uncomfortable with attending, we will be happy to refund or exchange your tickets.
UMS also sells tickets for University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance productions and the Ann Arbor Summer Festival.

I lost my tickets. Can I get new ones?
Please call the Ticket Office at 734-764-2538 to have duplicate tickets sent via email or held at Will Call. Duplicate tickets cannot be mailed.
Do you offer ticket discounts?
If I arrive late, can I still get in?
Late seating is not guaranteed and varies per performance. Please leave ample time for parking and arrival (please note: Most U-M parking structures are cash-only). UMS works with the artists to determine a late seating policy that will be the least disruptive to the artists and other ticket buyers.
Can I bring my baby?
While UMS offers specially priced Kids Tickets for children in grades 3 – 12, children under the age of 3 will not be admitted to regular, full-length UMS performances. All children, regardless of age, must be able to sit quietly in their own seats throughout the performance. Children unable to do so, along with the adult(s) accompanying them, may be asked by an usher to leave the auditorium.
Please use discretion in choosing to bring a child to a UMS performance. Remember, everyone must have a ticket regardless of age. Age recommendations for performances are posted on the artist performance pages.
Are your venues accessible for persons with disabilities?
UMS is committed to making all facets of our organization accessible to the widest possible audience. This commitment includes making our websites, performance venues, and event spaces accessible. Learn more about accessibility at UMS
What happens if a performance is sold out?
For sold-out performances, a wait list will be started when the box office opens at the venue for that performance date. Wait lists are in-person only and are not a guarantee of entrance.
Is my credit card safe?
UMS works with the University of Michigan Treasurer’s Office to ensure the highest industry standards for credit card security. We use the Tessitura ticketing system, which was developed by the Metropolitan Opera in the late 1990s and is now used by over 600 arts organizations in the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia. UMS does not store credit card information.
