Leave a comment

Are you ready for all your questions to be answered all in one post?

We have two great releases within the next week:

A Night with James Franco
Monday, September 15, at 7:30pm in the Grand Ballroom
Ticket Release: Thursday, September 4 at 5pm at the Information Desk in the Union

Pentatonix in Concert
Monday, September 29, at 8pm in the Grand Ballroom
Ticket Release: Monday, September 8 at 5pm at the Performance Hall in the Union

 One ticket per Buck-ID for each event

Q: ​Are the tickets Free?giphy

A: All OUAB events are free to OSU Students at the Columbus Campus!

Q: Do I have to wait in line?

giphy (2)

A: Yes we will have a line at the Ohio Union Information Desk the day of the ticket release. You must be there in person to receive a ticket. At this time we do not have an online option.

Q: How many tickets can I pick up?

giphy (3)

A: Depends! If OUAB is releasing tickets for an event at 1 per BuckID, you can only pick up one ticket. If it’s two per BuckID, you can have two tickets.

Q: My friend has class, can I pick up a ticket for them with their BuckID?

giphy (5)

A: No. Using someone else’s ID is against the law. It’s kind of like if you were trying to use someone else’s Driver’s License or any other form of ID.

Q: I go to a regional OSU campus. Can I get tickets to an event?giphy (7)

A: All OUAB events are for current OSU Columbus Campus students only. The Columbus-campus students pay the Student Activity Fee that supports OUAB’s events. Students at other campuses may pay an activity fee but it is not the same fee that funds OUAB. As events get closer, we may release tickets to regional campus students.

Q: I have class at the time of the ticket release. Can you save me a ticket?giphy (6)

A: No. Unfortunately we cannot reserve tickets. All tickets will be made available – first come, first serve while supplies last.

Q: Can I invite a non-OSU Columbus Campus student to an event?giphy (4)

A: Depends! If the tickets for an event were two per BuckID – that means at least one of the two people needs to have a valid BuckID to both pick up the tickets and must show the ID when they arrive at the event. If the tickets were available “1 per BuckID” than no – everyone must have a BuckID when they pick-up their ticket and when they arrive at the event.

Q: Can I bring a non-OSU friend to Flicks for Free?

giphy (1)A: Yes! Flicks for Free is always viewed as “2 per BuckID”.


Q: Is the event general admission?giphy (8)

A: Most of our events that require tickets are general admission meaning we do not assign specific seat numbers, etc.

Q: Is there a stand-by line at the event for people who do not have tickets?giphy (9)

A: Again – case by case. If a standby line will be available – we typically will communicate that via social media/website/etc. If a line is made available, there is no guarantee that those in line will be admitted.
