WHAT IT COSTS (reflects fee changes as of 7/1/2018)

Producer (Club/Organization) Incurred Fees

  • For events that charge for admittance
    • $.50 per sold ticket for tickets priced up to $20 each
    • $1.00 per sold ticket for ticket over $20 each
    • 4% of all credit card fees (based on gross receipts of all credit card sales)
  • For free, but ticketed events
    • $.15 per distributed ticket
    • $.05 per unused hard ticket printed for door sales at venues other than Shapiro Campus center and Spingold.
  • For events that charge a fee for non-Brandeis but are free to Brandeis student, we combine the above fee structures.
  • Examples of maximum ticket fees (if sold out):
Venue Set-Up Style Capacity

Maximum Fees for a Free Event
(Billed to the club charge line)

Levin Ballroom Auditorium Style 450 $67.50
Levin Ballroom Empty (Dance) 700 $105
Sherman Auditorium Style 400 $60
Sherman Empty (Dance) 500 $75
The average attendance for dance parties during 2017-18 was 200 people. So, with free tickets, the ticketing fee for 200 tickets would have been $30, which would have been billed to the club's account after the event. If any tickets charge for admittance for non-Brandeis guests, the ticketing fee would have been deducted from the ticket income and the remaining balance of the income would be deposited to the club account.

Customer Incurred Fees

The customer incurs a $2 per ticket handling fee for all Internet and telephone orders. This fee is applied in addition to the ticket price.  For example, one ticket at $5, plus $2 handling fee, equals a total of $7 for the customer. There is no fee for in-person sales.


In order for clubs to receive their ticket income or pay for ticketing fees (for free, but ticketed events), they must be recognized clubs and have a club account (a.k.a, university charge line).  All ticket sales income is collected at point of sale and held by Brandeis Tickets.  After the event(s) close and all sales are complete, Brandeis Tickets will run a settlement report and statement of account.  Ticket fees are deducted from the gross receipts, and all net adjusted receipts will be remitted to the club or organization via University accounting to the club's charge line.
