Student Tickets & Opportunities

$12 and $20 for College and High School Students

Students Clapping

Each season, more than 20% of UMS audiences are students — and those students collectively save hundreds of thousands of dollars each year through UMS’s generous student ticket discounts. Whether you buy in advance or on the day of the show, all college and high school students get the same deal: student tickets for just $12 or $20, depending on seat location and venue.

Students may purchase two tickets at $12 or $20 (depending on seat location) per show per valid student ID. Student with ID must be present at the time of ticket pick-up to receive the Student prices. To learn about placing a larger order, call the ticket office at 734-764-2538.

Plan Ahead: Inventory is Limited

For every production, UMS designates a significant number of seats that qualify for the student discount. If these seats sell out, UMS will monitor seat inventory and sales demand to assess whether additional student seats can be made available. If it is possible to increase the number of student seats, they will become available each Tuesday at 10 am. Additionally, student tickets will be sold at the door for all non-sell-out performances.

More Ways to Order
  • Over the Phone: Call the ticket office at 734-764-2538
  • At the EventProvided the performance is not sold out, student tickets will also be available at the door immediately before the performance.
Picking Up Your Tickets

Students can pick up their tickets in person with their student ID at will call at the performance. Limit two tickets per performance per student with ID. If student is not present with ID, the tickets will be adjusted to the full adult price, and the price difference will be charged.
