Season Pass Claim Process (Football & Men’s Basketball)

  • For those who purchase a season pass, there is also an online “claim” process prior to each home game, through My UK Athletics Student Account.
  • Before each game, season pass holders will need to follow the instructions to “claim” a ticket during a designated window in order to attend the game.
  • The game-to-game claim process is REQUIRED for pass holders who wish to attend. This is to maximize the number of ticket opportunities throughout the season for all students. Pass holders who wish to attend a particular game are strongly encouraged to claim their tickets when the claim window opens. Not coming to a particular game? Don’t claim your ticket! Claiming a ticket but letting it go unused prevents another student from being able to attend. Unclaimed tickets will be opened for other students to purchase on a single-game basis.
  • Season pass holders will be given first priority in claiming tickets, but they do run the risk of the event selling out if a ticket is not claimed during the specified window.
  • More information will be posted here by mid-August regarding when and how to claim tickets.

Single Game Purchase Process

  • Single game student tickets will be available for purchase through My UK Athletics Student Account by non-season pass holders.
  • The number of single game tickets available for purchase is based on tickets held for single-game sales and tickets that go unclaimed by season pass holders.
  • More information regarding how to purchase single game student tickets along with a calendar of when the purchase window opens will be available mid-August for football season.
  • Basketball single game ticket information will be posted mid-October.

Guest Ticket Purchase Process

What if I buy a season pass and can't attend all games?

If you are unable to attend a game after you have claimed a ticket, you may transfer your ticket to another UK student once you have received your ticket barcode. To help us create the best game day atmosphere for our teams, we encourage you to make sure that any tickets you claim are actually used!

How do I sit with my friends at events?

Since seating is not assigned until arrival, you will still be able to sit with your friends, given you claim the same area and enter the venue together.

What if I purchase a season pass and don't claim a ticket during my specified window?

Ticket claim windows will be communicated prior to the start of each season, and a full calendar of claim dates by sport will be posted here once available. If you miss a specified priority window, you will still have the opportunity to claim a ticket on a first-come, first-serve basis, while supplies last, prior to the event.

Can I transfer my tickets to someone else?

Once you have received your ticket barcode, you may electronically transfer your ticket to another UK student. The receiving student must be eligible for student tickets (full-time status) and have a valid UK student ID for entry. Screenshots will not be accepted at the gate with the adoption of SafeTix technology. To fight fraud, Ticketmaster launched SafeTix™, which uses an encrypted barcode that automatically refreshes every 15 seconds so the barcode cannot be stolen and used by another fan. For more information on SafeTix, visit www.UKathletics.com/MobileTickets.

When will single-game student tickets go on sale?

Guest tickets may not be available for every game, and prices will vary.

Who is eligible to purchase student tickets?

Full-time UK students with a valid UK Student ID are eligible to receive student ticket pricing and benefits. UK defines full-time status as 12 credit hours per semester for undergraduates, and 9 credit hours per semester for graduate students.

What if I will only be a full-time student for the fall semester?

Students may request a BBN Student Football Pass as well as single-game men’s basketball tickets, based on availability. Students must remain full-time in order to utilize student tickets.

Are student passes refundable?

Student passes are non-refundable. However, students who drop below full-time status or those who will no longer be attending UK, and therefore are no longer eligible, may request a refund as soon as possible after purchase. Refunds must be requested in writing to StudentTickets@uky.edu and include the student’s full name, UK student ID number, and reason for the request. Service charges are non-refundable. Please notify the ticket office by August 30th, 2024 if you may need a refund.

What if I require ADA (wheelchair accessible) seating?

UK Athletics will make every effort to accommodate patrons with disabilities, based on seating availability. Students who require accessible seating should contact the UK Ticket Office at (800) 928-2287 (Option 2) upon claiming a Pass ticket or purchasing a single-game student or guest ticket. Please contact the ticket office at least three business days prior to the event.

What is the K Fund and what student benefits are associated with making a $25 gift?

The K Fund is the fundraising arm of the UK Athletics Department, responsible for providing the resources necessary to ensure our student-athletes have the opportunity to earn a first-class education and compete for championships. These resources are provided through student-athlete scholarships, state-of-the-art facilities and the financial support essential for UK Athletics’ 24-25 varsity sport programs to excel.
