Ticketing for Student Clubs and Organizations
What You Get from Brandeis Tickets
We’re open six days a week: Monday-Friday, noon-6 p.m. and Saturday, noon-4 p.m.
We’re also open one-hour before the event for door sales and ticket pick-up.
Online ticketing is available 24/7 (not available for free tickets).
The box office is located in the Shapiro Campus Center Atrium for easy access and high visibility.
Door sales/will-call pick-up locations are generally at the event venue.
We can ticket events held in various venues on campus; we can even ticket some off-campus events.
We accept cash, checks, MasterCard and VISA for advance sales and door sales at Shapiro Theater.
Door sales at many venues are cash/check only.
Brandeis Tickets will promote your events on our website, Facebook and Twitter.
We will happily link to your website and Facebook events.
We request that all publicity, including posters, fliers, newsletters, social media, etc. refer to the box office as “Brandeis Tickets,” www.brandeis.edu/tickets, 781-736-3400.
Our staff members are knowledgeable and courteous. Ticketing is what we do.
We provide ticket count updates and detailed accounting reports.
We provide secure handling of money and deposit ticket income directly in club accounts.
We collect names and verify student IDs at the time of purchase.
When we manage the ticket sales, you can focus your time and attention on the event itself.

Examples of Maximum Ticket Fees (If Sold Out)
Maximum Fee for a Free Event*
|Levin Ballroom||Auditorium Style||450||$67.50|
|Levin Ballroom||Empty (Dance)||700||$105|
Dance Party Example
The ticketing fee for a dance party in which 200 free tickets are distributed would be $30. This fee would be billed to the club's account after the event. If non-Brandeis guests were charged for admittance, the ticketing fee would be deducted from that ticket income and the remaining balance of the income would be deposited in the club's account.
The event attendee incurs a $2 per ticket handling fee for all online and telephone orders. This fee is added to the ticket price. There is no fee for in-person sales.
Getting Your Money and Paying for Brandeis Tickets' Services
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 the 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.
