Who is eligible?
Anyone who is a full-time student (12 credit hours undergraduate or 9 credit hours graduate) and has a valid UK Student ID. Your athletics fee must also be paid with your tuition each semester. BCTC students (Cooper & Winchester Campuses) must register and pay the athletics fee online in order to be eligible to purchase student tickets. BCTC students in UK housing will be assessed the athletics fee in your statement from UK Housing.
Season Voucher System
In an effort to provide as many students as possible the opportunity to attend games and sit in the lower level student section for each game, while maintaining capacity restrictions, a voucher system is in place to determine student seating at Kroger Field. Vouchers will be exchanged on a first-come, first-serve basis on game day at the student entrance of Kroger Field, as long as seating remains. By over-selling the student section by a reasonable amount (based on historical data), the purchase of a voucher does not necessarily guarantee admittance into the stadium.
- Kentucky has reserved approximately 5,000 student seats per game, including approximately 4,000 in the lower-level student section and 1,000 in the upper-level. Up to 6,250 vouchers will be sold. Thus, admission into Kroger Field is only guaranteed for the first 5,000 students that enter with a voucher.
- The first 4,000 students to enter with a voucher will receive a wristband for the lower-level student section. Wristbands are valid for general admission seating in Sections 34-40. Once all lower-level wristbands have been distributed, remaining students will exchange their voucher for a upper-level assigned seat, while supplies last.
- Purchasing a season voucher allows students the opportunity to attend all seven home football games, but admission into the stadium is not guaranteed and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
- Students will be able to sit with their friends by entering the stadium together, since seating locations will be determined when entering the stadium.
How To Purchase – SOLD OUT
- Student season vouchers for the 2017 season are sold out. As an alternative, students may purchase single-game vouchers, based on availability, in-person at the Joe Craft Center ticket office.
Entry Procedures & Seating
- Students must enter Kroger Field through Gate 14 or 15 with their student voucher and valid UK Student ID. Gate 15 will be used for Express Lanes for students entering the stadium without a bag. Gates open 1.5 hours prior to kickoff.
- The first 4,000 students to enter with a voucher will receive a wristband for the lower-level student section. Wristbands are valid for general admission seating in Sections 34-40. Once all lower-level wristbands have been distributed, remaining students will exchange their voucher for an upper-level assigned seat, while supplies last. Purchasing a season voucher allows students the opportunity to attend all seven home football games, but admission into the stadium is not guaranteed and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Family Weekend will take place October 6-8, 2017. UK Athletics is excited to host three events for students and families to enjoy together:
- Football vs. Missouri (October 7): Student & guest tickets are now on sale online! Guest tickets are priced at the group rate and are $40 or $50, based on seating location and availability. Student tickets are priced at $5. Seating for Family Weekend is reserved in areas outside of the student section. Students who already have a season voucher package may elect to purchase an additional $5 ticket to be assigned with their guest tickets for this game.
- Volleyball vs. Auburn (October 8): Students may show their UK Student ID at the Avenue of Champions entrance to get themselves and up to 4 guests admitted free to Memorial Coliseum.

The UK Ticket Office receives a limited visiting team allotment to each away-game. Away-game prices are set by the opposing school, so there is no student discount. Students are able to purchase away game tickets through the same process as the general public. For prices, as well as to purchase, visit the Single-Game Tickets page.
