FAQs About Reserving your Tickets:

Who is Eligible?

All George Mason University students carrying paid credit hours are eligible for free student tickets. Students participating in OLLI, Mason’s Senior Citizen Waiver Program, or the audit program are not eligible to receive free tickets.

How Do I Get Free Student Tickets?

Registration for free student tickets and access passes will be offered online through the Mason360 platform to any eligible Mason student beginning two Tuesdays prior to each event. Registration ends at least three hours prior to the event’s start time or when the event reaches capacity.

Free student tickets must be picked up in person from Will Call at the location specified on the event registration on the day of the event, beginning one hour prior to the event. Students must bring their valid Mason ID when picking up tickets.

How Many Tickets Can I Get?
Eligible Mason students may request 1 or 2 tickets per event, depending on availability. The number of tickets available for each event is noted on the Free Student Ticket Calendar and Mason360 registration page.

Mason students may also buy one discounted companion ticket for most events in the Great Performances at Mason season and Hylton Presents season by visiting the Ticket Office. Additional tickets are available at full price.

Student-priced tickets are available for most events offered by the academic units of the College of Visual and Performing Arts.

What if I want to sit with my friends?

For events at the Center for the Arts, students wishing to sit together must pick up tickets from Will Call together and request adjacent seats when picking up tickets from Will Call.

For events at the Hylton Center, students wishing to sit together must contact the Hylton Center Ticket Office to make arrangements prior to the performance ((voice) 703-993-7700, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.).

What if I can't use my tickets?

Once student tickets are issued, they cannot be exchanged for other seat locations or performance dates. Student tickets may not be resold. Tickets will not be honored if they are resold.

What if I need an accessibility accommodation?
