Student and Youth Discounts

Only full-time UCSB students who have completed enrollment are eligible to purchase UCSB student-rate tickets (one ticket per ID). UCSB students must show a valid UCSB student ID at the time of purchase and at the event, or be charged the difference for a general public ticket. Any high school or college student who purchases a discount ticket ("All student" or "Youth") must show current student ID at the door, or be charged the difference for a general public ticket.

Authorized Sellers

Always purchase tickets directly from Arts & Lectures, the event venue or the ticket agency authorized by the venue. Tickets obtained through the secondary market or unauthorized sellers may be fraudulent and will not guarantee entry.

Ticket Exchanges

Exchanges are available to subscribers. Non-subscribers may only exchange tickets for a different performance of the same event for a $4 fee per ticket. Tickets for exchange must be received by the A&L Ticket Office at least two full business days prior to the event. Tickets are exchanged at face value and are subject to availability. Tickets of a higher value exchanged for a lower value are considered an even exchange; tickets exchanged for a higher value need the difference paid.

Unused Tickets/Tax-deductible Donations

Unused tickets may be donated back to A&L as a tax-deductible contribution. Tickets must be received by the A&L Ticket Office up to two full business days prior to the event.
It is the policy of the University of California, Santa Barbara and the UC Santa Barbara Foundation that a portion of gifts and/or the income from gifts may be used to defray the costs of raising and administering funds.

Lost Tickets

Tickets can be replaced only for reserved-seating events. Contact the Ticket Office in advance of the event for replacements.

Canceled Events and Refunds

2020-2021 live/in-person events have been canceled, and ticket holders may put their balance toward a donation, account credit or refund. Virtual event sales are final. Refunds are only granted for canceled events not replaced. 

Services for Patrons with Disabilities

A&L is committed to making events accessible to all who wish to enjoy them. For more information about disability-related accommodations, including wheelchair seating, assistive listening devices, large-print programs and seating for patrons with special needs, please call our Ticket Office.

Late Seating

A&L makes every effort to begin events at the published start time. Patrons who arrive after a performance has begun will not be seated until an appropriate point in the program determined by the artist.

Suitability for Children

With the exception of our Family Fun series, A&L’s performing arts season is designed primarily for adult audiences. If you have questions about the appropriateness of an event, please don’t hesitate to call. Each child, regardless of age, must have a ticket and sit in a seat.

UC Santa Barbara Smoke-Free and Tobacco-Free Policy

Under the authority of California Government Code 7597.1, smoking and the use of all tobacco products, the use of smokeless tobacco products, and the use of unregulated nicotine products (e.g., "e-cigarettes") are prohibited anywhere at all indoor and outdoor spaces managed by UC Santa Barbara.

Parking on the UCSB Campus

A UCSB permit is required to park on campus. Arts & Lectures’ patrons can buy open-ended evening (5pm) and weekend parking permits from the ticket office for $4. Permits cannot be refunded or replaced, and cannot be held at will call. If you do not have a prepaid permit from Arts & Lectures, you must purchase one on campus. Each parking lot will have a machine that vends permits with credit card or cash (no change given). Parking in designated ADA spaces requires a valid UCSB parking permit be displayed. UCSB parking fees are subject to change.
