Patron Information & Ticket Policies

Due to the nature of live events, artists, programs and prices are subject to change.

Health protocols for 2022-2023 events will be determined in conjunction with evolving state, local and university health guidelines, and will be updated here and communicated to affected ticket holders via email. We appreciate your flexibility; please visit the Health & Safety page for details and updates.

All tickets and orders are subject to service charges and/or facility fees. Ticket prices, service charges and facility fees are subject to change without notice.

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.

UCSB student-rate tickets are available to full-time UCSB students who have completed enrollment (one ticket per ID). A valid UCSB student ID is required at the time of purchase and at the event. "All Student" ticket holders must show current student ID at the event. "Youth" ticket holders of high school age may be asked to show ID at the event.

Should you decide you are uncomfortable attending an event due to health concerns, tickets for the 2022-23 season purchased by August 4, 2022, are refundable until the Ticket Office closes the business day before the event in question.

Subscribers may exchange tickets for another event during the 2022-23 season (subject to availability) of equal or lesser value up to one business day before the event with no exchange fee.

Non-subscribers may exchange tickets for another event during the 2022-23 season (subject to availability) of equal or lesser value up to one business day before the event for a $5 fee per ticket.

If an event is canceled or rescheduled, tickets are refundable. The value of the tickets for canceled or rescheduled events may also be donated or exchanged for another event of equal or lesser value during the 2022-23 season. Service charges may not be refundable.

At this time, at-home viewing is not being offered for the 2022-2023 season.

A&L is committed to making events accessible to all who wish to enjoy them. Please contact the A&L Ticket Office in advance to ensure the best possible experience and receive information about accessible seating, assistive listening devices, large-print programs and other accommodations.

A&L’s performing arts season is designed primarily for adult audiences. Contact the ticket office if you have questions about the appropriateness of an event. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket to enter the theater.

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

A permit is required to park on campus. Permit dispensers are available in all campus parking lots. Purchase a short-term permit on arrival using your license plate number. Note: Select lots are closed to visitor parking. Visit the Transportation & Parking Services website for more information.

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.
