FOOTBALL STUDENT TICKET DISTRIBUTION
Vanderbilt students interested in attending football games must pick up a ticket in advance prior to arriving at the game. A valid student ID will be required to receive a student ticket and students will be required to pick up their tickets at the following locations:
Day Prior to Game: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. at Rand Hall
Day of Game: 3 hours prior to kickoff until 15 minutes after kickoff at Memorial Gym (25th Avenue entrance)
Students are only able to pick up one ticket per ID and they must present their ticket and their ID card at the stadium gate to gain entrance to the game at the Student Gate (Gate 4).
As a reminder, there are a limited number of student tickets available and they will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis at the locations mentioned above. Due to the high level of interest in home football games, it is likely that student tickets will run out and some students may be turned away.
Graduate students who have paid to have their ID card validated must follow the same student ticket procedures. A validated student ID does not guarantee a seat for any graduate student.
Payment of the student activity fee validates an undergraduate's VU student identification card for the football, baseball, and basketball season. Students must pick up a ticket in advance and present their ticket and valid student ID at Gate 4 of Vanderbilt Stadium. For basketball, the card has to be presented at the Student Entrance near the Southeast Entrance for entry to all the home games. This validation does not guarantee entry, it only establishes eligibility. Validations must be done before game-days and will not be validated on game-days.
After a graduate student has registered for the fall semester, the grad student is allowed to validate his/her VU student identification card for season tickets. The athletic validation fee for Football is $25.00 and allows the grad student to enter at Gate 4 of Vanderbilt Stadium. Also for football, grad students can opt to sit in section H and can ask for a ticket in Section H from the usher in Section H. The athletic validation fee for Basketball is $25.00 and allows the grad student into the Student Entrance near the Southeast Entrance. There is no validation fee for baseball and grad students can get in free based on availability.
This fee must be paid at the Ticket Office in the McGugin Center and the student must present a valid VU student identification card.
This per season fee will validate the ID card for that season and will have to be revalidated every season. If the student leaves school for any reason, the validation will be voided. This validation does not guarantee entry, it only establishes eligibility.
Due to the amount of preparation and phone traffic on Vanderbilt gamedays, the Vanderbilt Ticket Office will not be able to process any Graduate Student Validations on the day of the game. If tickets are still available, grad students may purchase them at face value. We regret the inconvenience.
Paying for a graduate validation does not guarantee you a seat for any game. All student tickets are based on a first come, first serve basis.
SPOUSES and DEPENDENTS
If you were issued a spouse ID, you may validate the VU identification card in the same manner as a graduate student listed above. A spouse or dependent account is separate and cannot be ordered under the student's account.
If not issued a spouse ID, then a spouse or dependent of an undergraduate or graduate student may obtain a VU identification card in the following manner: the student must accompany the spouse and/or dependent to the VU Card Office, 184 Sarratt Student Center, with a copy of their marriage license, a photo ID of the spouse and the $10.00 activation fee for each card. After obtaining the VU identification card, the spouse and/or dependent is then eligible to validate his/her card in the same manner as a graduate student listed above.
STUDENT ENTRY PROCEDURES AND REQUIREMENTS
Each student must have a valid VU identification card and only one entry per card per game or event.
LOST or STOLEN ID CARDS
If lost or stolen must be replaced through Commodore card office, there is no exception.
