Student Tickets & Opportunities

$15 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 $15 or $20, depending on seat location and venue.

Students may purchase two tickets at $15 or $20 (depending on seat location) per show per valid student ID (except for Berliner Philharmoniker). 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. Student tickets are available beginning Monday, August 26, 2024.

Bert’s Ticket Program

All U-M undergraduate students are eligible to receive a FREE ticket to a UMS performance per academic year through the Bert’s Ticket program (a $20 value)!

Bert Askwith (1911-2015) was a true victor for the arts. This U-M alumnus pledged to give each first- and second-year student a free ticket to a UMS performance and provide a second ticket for a friend for just $10. UMS is pleased to extend this program to all undergraduate students this season!

Eligible performances for the fall semester are available beginning Monday, August 26, 2024. All performances are eligible for the Bert’s Ticket offer, though quantities may be limited for some performances.

Bert’s Ticket program is made possible with support from Patti Askwith Kenner.

New! The M-Zone

A New Student Section for Selected Performances

UMS will set aside 40 tickets in the front of the main floor — the best seats in the house — exclusively for U-M students for selected performances this season.

Inspired by both former students who wanted to sit together without having to plan far in advance, and by former UMS Board Chair Rachel Bendit and Regent Mark Bernstein, who challenged us to make it easier for students to get the best seats for UMS events, the M-Zone is a new pilot program this year, with shows announced 10-14 days before the performance. Events and ticket availability will be announced only through the UMS Student Newsletter and will be available online for just $20 per ticket on a first-come, first-served basis.
