Passport to the Arts

See something amazing! Try something new! We’ll even give you a FREE ticket!

Passport To The Arts is an initiative to encourage new students to explore the arts on campus. We’ve revamped the program, and are excited to offer new ways to help you see great arts events!

Here’s how it works: A new Passport ticket voucher is created every two weeks. Pick up a Passport Voucher at the start of each cycle in one of our pickup locations across campus (including the Office of New Student Programs on 1st Flr LSA Bldg; Pierpont Commons' CIC InfoDesk; and Most Residence Hall Community Centers). Then pick an arts event from the voucher and exchange it for a FREE or DISCOUNTED ticket by bringing it to the relevant box office or ticketing location! Vouchers are printed and distributed in limited supply, so don't wait until the last minute to pick your up!
