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.

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.

Bert’s Ticket Program

All U-M undergraduate students are eligible to receive a FREE ticket to a UMS performance 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.

Bert’s Tickets are available online or in-person at the League Ticket Office beginning Wednesday, October 20, for fall events and Wednesday, January 5, for winter events.

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

Student Committee

The UMS Student Committee is an official student organization at the University of Michigan! Students focus on connecting the campus community to the performing arts through UMS performances and experiences.

Each season, the Student Committee creates and executes marketing plans for a select number of UMS performances. Students have found that the committee is a really satisfying, social way to stay connected to the arts during school. To top it off, you’ll get two free tickets to a UMS show for every four hours you volunteer.

You can join at any time! Email for more information.
