Student Tickets & Opportunities
$12 and $20 for College and High School Students
Student tickets go on sale for all 2020/21 season events on Thursday, August 27! However, due to capacity limitations for any in-venue performances, student tickets may be limited.
Whether you buy in advance or on the day of the show, all college and high school students get the same sweet deal: student tickets for just $12 or $20, depending on seat location and venue.
Students may purchase two $12 or $20 tickets 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.
Please see more information below about picking up tickets and verifying your ID for Print at Home e-tickets.
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 Event: Provided 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.
Skip the Line & Verify Your ID
Email us a photo of your student ID from your school email account to register your student ID and get your tickets mailed or emailed to you all season long.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Bert’s Ticket Program
The Bert’s Ticket program has been suspended for Fall 2020. Details about the second half of the season will be announced in December 2020.
Bert Askwith (1911-2015) was a true victor for the arts and an incredible advocate for the U-M student experience. Bert pledged to buy every first- and second-year U-M undergraduate student a free ticket to a UMS performance and provide a second ticket for a friend for just $10.
Bert’s Ticket program is made possible with support from Patti Askwith Kenner.
